Conservation Photography Shapes the Way We Think about Nature
Jackson Hole, WY—Conservation photography brings together the natural and human environment. With the goal of bringing conservation to the public eye by celebrating nature's beauty through images of the natural world, the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and their annual “Photography at the Summit” workshop are meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming May 17-24, 2008.
“Visual images of natural beauty are important tools of the conservation movement,” said Peter Tignor, Innkeeper and Chef-in-Residence at the Bentwood Inn. “We’re very happy to support the ILCP achieve their mission of training conservation photographers.” The Bentwood Inn is providing steeply discounted lodging and meals for the attendees.
The International League of Conservation Photographers wants to use photography to help the environment gain a stronger position on the agenda of politics and culture, and to help photographers show the public what is at stake. This prestigious group of the world's leading nature and wildlife photographers and conservationists are working on projects designed to raise awareness about conservation issues everywhere.
The Bentwood Inn is a luxury bed and breakfast in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, nestled on three acres of solitude, not far from the Snake River, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the south entrance to Grand Teton National Park, and the town of Jackson. The cozy five-bedroom inn was built in 1995 with 200 year old logs brought in from Yellowstone National Park, recycled from the fire of 1988. The Bentwood Inn is a welcoming, intimate lodge, focused on food, hospitality, and creating personalized experiences for each of its guests.
The Bentwood Inn is a proud member of 1% For The Tetons, an initiative by local businesses who have committed to donating 1% of gross receipts to environmental projects in Jackson Hole.
