Sculptor Frankie Flowers and his Mountain Dan Chainsaw Art team camped as volunteers at Highlands Hammock State Park recently as part of a unique project sponsored by the park’s Friends organization.

The chainsaw artists transformed two large stumps in the picnic area into a Southern black bear and a Florida panther.

“These two large mammals tread softly in the hammock and rangers and visitors are delighted to occasionally catch a glimpse, said spokesman Carla Kappmeyer-Sherwin. “These ‘true Americana’ carvings will be officially unveiled at the 28th annual Civilian Conservation Corps Festival on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013.

“Save the date and plan to attend this year’s CCC Festival,” Kappmeyer-Sherwin said.

Area residents are encourged to join the Friends of Highlands Hammock as a member, volunteer or both.
