The Importance of the Artist in Nature
Join Friends for our July Wild Speaker Series, "The Importance of the Artist in Nature" in an online Zoom presentation. We will be talking about how artists, in this case photographers, are critical to protecting Wild Nevada. It's through their lens that people around the world become inspired to visit and protect these spectacular landscapes. Three stellar photographers, John Beach, Lori Hibbett, and Jeff Sullivan will showcase their Wild Nevada photography, how it supports public lands advocacy, and share what goes into capturing these lands while planning the logistics of visiting such remote places. These artists are also participating in this year's Artown.... tune in to hear what's on the horizon and get in on a special offer!
Lori Hibbett and Jeff Sullivan comprise the Great Basin School of Photography, teaching workshops that specialize in night photography. They also do time lapse and are proud to call Nevada home.
John Beach is a retired environmental scientist from the EPA and has called Reno home for the last 10 years. He's been making photographs for his whole adult life, but got serious about digital photography 15 years ago.
We'll wrap up with a Q&A session to answer all your questions about Nevada's Wilderness trails. This will be an informative chat for the whole family!

Every first Thursday of the month at 7pm, Friends of Nevada Wilderness hosts a local environmental expert for folks who are interested in the outdoors to learn more about hikes, local habitat, and ways to get involved with conservation efforts. Formerly in the REI Boca Park Community Room, the Wild Speaker Series is online during the COVID-19 Pandemic for the safety of our staff and supporters. We will return to REI Boca Park in the near future and continue to make the Wild Speaker Series available virtually.
