Daniel Peterson, 319-643-2541

Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch has opened a new exhibit entitled Iowa Tallgrass Prairies: Splendor in the Grass. On loan from Photographer and Ankeny, Iowa native Gary D. Tonhouse is a collection of color photographs that best expresses the natural world of the tallgrass prairies of Iowa. The exhibit, located at the National Park Service Visitor Center, is on display from January 4, through May 30, 2005.

My greatest hope for this exhibit: 
Is that individuals are more intrigued by the subject of nature
than by the photographs themselves and that this photography 
exhibit hopefully creates as well as inspires an awareness 
an concern for our natural world !!!!   
Thank you. 

Gary D.Tonhouse
