Viewing the natural world through a camera lens provides a unique perspective
In a world of iPads, laptops and gaming, Texas’s current generation of children are devoting less time than ever to the great outdoors.
To inspire our kids to take a stronger interest in Mother Nature, the Valley Land Fund has made its annual Southern Exposures youth nature photo program a priority.
Southern Exposures allows us to expand our mission by reaching broader audiences in South Texas, while enabling us to continue preserving native wildlife habitat and educating our future conservation leaders. Nature photography has long been an important educational tool for VLF since 1994. Therefore, we believe that viewing the natural world through a camera lens provides a unique perspective, particularly for children. As photography evolves, it’s never been easier to capture images of the world around us – and the most compelling nature images can help protect wildlife in profound ways.
