The Gasconade County Historical Society's first quarterly meeting of 2020 will be held Sunday, Feb. 16, beginning at 2 p.m. in Hermann. The event will be held at Hermann United Methodist Church on Hwy. 100 west.  The featured speaker will be nature photographer Bruce Paneitz, a life-long resident of Gasconade County. He became interested in photography after he worked on his Owensville High School yearbook. He does mostly landscape and nature photography, and is especially interested in capturing images of bald eagles.  Paneitz is a Missouri Conservation Eagle Nest Monitor and submitted the photo used on the signs that identify monitors when they are on duty. He has had several photos published in the Missouri Conservation magazine and regularly contributes to the Naturalist Notebook, a well-known Facebook site with followers world-wide.  GCHS meetings are free and are open to the public. Members are encouraged to bring guests. Light refreshments will be served after the program.
