Accomplished Wildlife Photographer to Visit WSU

October 29, 2008

OGDEN, Utah – Rosalie Winard, a highly-accomplished wildlife photographer, will speak at Weber State University Nov. 6 in connection with the WSU Environmental Initiatives Committee’s environmental speaker series.

Winard’s photography is currently touring as part of an exhibit, “Wild Birds of the American Wetlands,” which debuts Nov. 1 at the Utah Museum of Natural History and will run until Feb. 22. The exhibit features 18 different species of birds, many of which were photographed in Utah. Winard has witnessed and documented avian adaptations to habitat encroachment and the sudden disappearance and re-emergence of bird colonies. Winard will speak about her exhibit and her efforts of trying to save avian habitats as part of her address at WSU. There will also be a slideshow of her photography.

Winard’s address, “An Itinerant Photographer of the Wetlands,” will take place at 7 p.m. in the Lindquist Lecture Hall of the Kimball Visual Arts Center and will be followed by a book signing.

WSU’s Environmental Initiatives Committee is an ad hoc committee of the WSU Faculty Senate. The committee was responsible for providing the screening of “An Inconvenient Truth” last year, which drew about 400 viewers.
