We have formed a new partnership to help in the conservation of California Birds and their habiats through the Conservation Past the Archival Print program.
All online sales in the next three months from the Birds of California Portfolio will benefit the Peninsula Open Space Trust or POST as most people know them as, with 15% of sales going directly to this organization.
POST is an amazing non-profit organization. Since its founding in 1977, POST has been responsible for saving 64,000 acres as permanent open space and parkland in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. I have used many of these lands, and have taken a number of my favorite images on land that is protected due to them. It is crucial to support POST’s land conservation efforts in an area that is so highly populated as the Bay Area. These sanctuaries provide safe havens for many species and can act as rest areas for migratory species and as wildlife corridors for dispersing mammals.
Much of the land POST has protected is open to the public. In addition POST sponsors the annual Wallace Stegner Lectures. For a list of places you can visit, go to http://www.openspacetrust.org/activities/outings.html
