Of all of the iconic conservation land in the United States, perhaps none is more evocative than the Grand Canyon, a Wonder of the World and the most-visited of the National Parks. We are thrilled to welcome renowned Conservationist and Nature Photographer Tom Blagden to speak about his newest book, The Grand Canyon: Unseen Beauty: Running the Colorado River, which brings the reader on a journey by boat through the mile-deep canyons and tumultuous passages of the mighty Colorado River.
TOM BLAGDEN has been a professional nature photographer for over forty years, with works appearing in national conservation publications, including cover shots for Smithsonian, Audubon, Outdoor Photography, Nature Conservancy, and Sierra. His work is devoted to land protection and conservation, with a concentration on the natural landscapes of South Carolina, Maine, Costa Rica, and the Grand Canyon. Join us to learn about his latest publication, The Grand Canyon: Unseen Beauty: Running the Colorado River, which brings the reader on a journey by boat through the mile-deep canyons of the mighty Colorado River and highlights the importance of conserving this national treasure.
Program starts promptly at 6:15 PM, followed by cocktails and refreshments. Copies of the book will be available for sale, and Tom has generously donated the profits from the evening’s book sales to Willistown Conservation Trust.
