Living Waters: Aquatic Preserves of Florida Exhibition
Living Waters: Aquatic Preserves of Florida, a collection of 29 black-and-white photographs by preeminent Florida photographer Clyde Butcher, will be on exhibit from May 2 through Nov. 14 at the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center art gallery, 300 Tower Road in Naples. Since 2004 the artistic and educational exhibition has traveled the state to increase awareness of and appreciation for Florida’s 41 aquatic preserves. The 110,000-acre Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve encompasses two of those aquatic preserves and part of more than five million acres of diverse water landscape and coastal areas that are critical to Florida’s future. In conjunction with the exhibit, Rookery Bay will show the companion one-hour nature film documentary, “Living Waters: Aquatic Preserves of Florida.” The film includes an introduction and closing remarks by Butcher and was produced and directed by cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus. Call 239-417-6310 or visit rookerybay.org for more information about the exhibit and film viewing schedule.
