Today we had Dave Kuty as our guest speaker.  He is a long-time docent at Henry Cowell State Park.  He didn't talk about our redwood state parks in the area, but a recent trip to France where he and his wife paid a visit to the impressionist artist Claude Monet's garden.  The French government has preserved Monet's residence and garden as a museum.
