Lecture by Clyde
Ding Darling, Sanibel

January 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Clyde Butcher will be giving two lectures on January 24, 10:00 am and 1:00 pm about his Everglades adventures. Before and after lectures he will be available for a book signing.  His exhibition ~ America’s Everglades will be on display as part of the Refuge’s 75th-anniversary celebration.

The exhibit will be on display through February 8, 2020, and is the culmination of a quarter-century of photographic expeditions in the Everglades. From the deepest cypress strands, the sawgrass prairies, coastal waters, and languid estuaries, to pinpoint still-lives of rare species, Butcher reveals Florida’s ecosystems in magnificent detail. He makes an unquestionable case for why we should care about its future. The 35 large black and white photographs in this exhibition majestically capture the beauty of this ethereal ecosystem.  Butcher brings the unique light and clarity of his artistic visions to this mysterious and primeval place rarely seen by humans. His goal as an artist is to preserve our natural heritage that is America’s Everglades for future generations.
