Cuba: The Natural Beauty – Nature Has No Borders The United Nations declared 2002 as “The Year of the Mountains.” Cuba hosted the conference inviting conservationists from across the Americas and Caribbean region to meet. The coordinator of the UN programs in Cuba invited Clyde Butcher to create a portfolio of the mountainous lands of Cuba; Clyde set out on three week-long expeditions into unfamiliar lands.
During this presentation, Clyde will discuss his sense of dedication to use his art form, photography to show people that there is a unity between all undisturbed natural places, whether a peak of a mountain range in Cuba, the wetlands where water covers the soil, or a streambed in an urban watershed. Clyde’s work is important aesthetically, and it is his hope that it will provide a vital tool for energizing efforts to preserve wilderness and wildlife habitat.
