My greatest hope for this exhibit is that individuals are more intrigued
by the subject of nature than by the photographs themselves an hopefully
this exhibit will inspire a greater awareness an appreciation of our natural world.

The goods of the earth are gifts from God. We have a responsibility to care
for these goods as stewards and trustees, not as mere consumers and users.
