David McChesney will be our speaker this month, and an exciting speaker he is! The award winning and celebrated nature/wildlife photographer and author is a former advanced photography instructor for the Desert Institute of Joshua Tree National Park.
His work has been published around the globe and is seen in national parklands and wildlife refuges, in museums, at the National Park Gallery in the Interior Department in Washington D.C. and the Capitol Building in Sacramento. David’s images have been used to protect and preserve whole corridors and many wildlife specimens such as Desert Tortoise, Bobcat, Bighorn Sheep, Whooping Cranes of Texas and the wild horses of Arizona’s Salt River.
David’s topic at our meeting: American Birdlife (and the renowned harmonica player has promised to treat us to a display of his musical skills, as well). Check out some of his nature photos at his Facebook page:
