In 2009, Mountaineers Foundation awarded a grant to the Burke Museum for a public exhibition of the 2010 International Conservation Photography Awards. The competition was initiated in 1997 by noted conservationist and photographer, Art Wolfe.

The opening of this event was a huge success! Lines to get in and view the photos stretched out the door.

Glorious photos of conservation are a wonderful way to connect those who don’t have easy access to the beauty of nature.

We are proud to be a longtime supporter of the Burke Museum and their unique programs that connect others to the natural world.
