'Intertwined, requiem for the trees' 

will now be hosted by the Washington State History Museum

Laminated root rot problems at Kopachuck State Park, Henderson Bay, resulted in local artists creating artworks to remember the diseased trees before they are cut down. Local artists Robin Peterson and Margo Macdonald spearhead the project.
