Machebeuf High School

John Fielder is coming to the Lowry Speaker Series! Please join us at 7pm on Monday, May 1 at Machebeuf High School (in Lowry) as John talks about celebrating 100 years of Colorado’s National Parks and Monuments, and shares many of his related photographs.

2016 was the 100th anniversary of America’s National Park Service. John Fielder, Colorado’s preeminent nature photographer has photographed the state’s most sublimed federal lands for over 40 years. In this original presentation, he guides us on foot and boat through its National Parks & Monuments. By raft you will negotiate thousand-foot deep canyons of the Colorado, Yampa, Green, Arkansas, and Gunnison Rivers. On foot you will step inside the cliff dwellings and castles of early Native Americans. And with backpack and tent, you will visit the most remote parts of the granddaddy of mountain parks, Rocky Mountain. Enjoy John’s commentary about his life in the wilderness, the challenges and techniques of wilderness photography, and beautiful music behind the images. Included in the slide show are John’s iconic repeat photos of W.H. Jackson’s 19th-century Colorado images. Beautiful music compliments many of the images.

John will be on hand before and after the event to sign all of his popular Colorado coffee table and guide books, including his latest Wildflowers of Colorado and Colorado’s Yampa River: Free Flowing & Wild.

30% of all sales benefit the Lowry Foundation. Please consider buying one or more of John’s books and support the Lowry Foundation at the same time!

Admission is free. No reservatins or tickets are necessary.
