A Presentation by Conservation Photographer Carlton Ward
Thursday, 20 February 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Carlton Ward is a world renowned conservation photographer and has worked with the Smithsonian Institute as well as National Geographic among others. At this event, he will present highlights from his recent 100 day 1000 mile expedition through the heart of Florida to promote the preservation of open space and wildlife corridors. His efforts in documenting and promoting the trek, including a nationally aired PBS special, have become one of the most widely recognized efforts to build public-private partnerships for the benefit of both land owners and the general public. His work establishes an example that communities like Winter Haven can follow to build partnerships for the protection of natural resources. Under this new model communities would value natural resources for their social, cultural, and economic benefits in addition to the ecological advantages they provide. Please join us as we continue to adopt and enact a vision for the future of natural resources in Winter Haven.
