People to stand naked in name of art

BERKELEY - A large group of nude people will pose among the threatened oak trees at UC Berkeley on Saturday in the name of art.

At least six protesters have been living in the trees since Dec. 2, protesting UC Berkeley's plan to raze the oaks and build a $125 million sports training facility at the edge of Memorial Stadium.

On Saturday between 10 a.m. and noon, Bay Area photographer Jack Gescheidt, who creates portraits of trees and unclothed people together, said he expects a "very large group to participate" in a photo shoot.

Okay, so I had this thought about being somewhere here in IL where they are taking down treen because of the bugs. And I would be walking by as they unearth some truffles. Ya know they are found around oaks right?
