About this Talk

As photographers, we use the national parks as sources of inspiration and subject matter. Our charge in return is to help the parks, not because we "owe" it to them, but because we want and need to preserve America's most precious lands for the photographers and the generations that follow.

In this panel discussion, a park ranger, a parks activist, an artist, a longtime parks photographer and a Leave No Trace expert will explore ways that all of us can contribute to ensuring we're not the last ones who enjoy these special spaces.
