Working together with a couple of my photographer friends, Bill Lea and Dan Thompson, we have created a way for nature photographers to support the recovery efforts in the Smokies and the surrounding communities. Through the Great Smoky Mountains Association (GSMA), a fund has been established where nature photographers (and anyone interested in nature photography for that matter!) can donate money to support GSMA’s recovery efforts. This is very exciting!
Perhaps more than anyone, nature photographers understand the extraordinary gift Great Smoky Mountains National Park represents. Whether it’s a beautiful Cades Cove scene, a light drizzle on Roaring Fork, or a sunset at Clingman’s Dome, we know how special this place is!
This is a chance to show our support for the Smokies and the surrounding communities during the long rebuilding process ahead. All of the funds donated through this effort will be used by GSMA to support these rebuilding efforts.
Here is a link to the donation fund: https://donate.constantcontact.com/lp/pages/8932d55e-2fd5-4581-9eed-3f5bd2922a32
Even if you are not a nature photographer, I hope you can support our cause. Please share this link with as many of your friends and members of the nature photography community as possible. Only through widespread distribution of this message can we raise the funds needed for the wildfire recovery efforts!
Thanks for helping!
