Wednesday, November 20th. Sage Spirit Project Update by Dave Showalter. This program is sure to be a visual delight!
Dave Showalter is a conservation photographer who is in his fifth year of working on a book and multi-media project—the Sage Spirit Project—that features our imperiled sagebrush ecosystem. LAS has served as fiscal sponsor for the project, enabling funders to make tax-deductible donations.
Dave is not unique in his belief that the "sagebrush is the beating heart of the Intermountain West" but he does have a remarkable ability to capture its beauty and highlight the diversity of species that call this habitat home. He also has photographed the industrial development that threatens this region and has worked with conservation groups to draw attention to these threats and foster protection for this ecosystem.
Come and see spectacular photographs and support this important work to highlight and protect the sagebrush ecosystem.
UW Berry Biodiversity Center, 10th & Lewis Street intersection. Bird chat and refreshments at 6:30 pm in the lobby. Program begins at 7 pm in the auditorium.
