Speaker-in-Residence

Michael J. Colella - 2024

We are very fortunate to have a fabulous new Speaker-in-Residence for the Spring 2024 session of the EFMLS Wildacres Workshop, Michael. J. Colella, a multi-faceted artist, who will share his passion of photography, rocks and minerals, world sands, suiseki stones, and wood-turning art.

Michael J. Colella is a native Washingtonian who grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. As a child, Mike used to go hunting with his dad and scour the ground for rocks and possible fossils. In 5th grade, his dad made a wooden display case for his collection to enter in the school science fair, and his first connection to the earth was formed.
