The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History has unveiled an epic photo exhibit called “Wilderness Forever: 50 Years of Protecting America’s Wild Places.” The exhibit features jury-selected images that perfectly capture the gripping beauty of America’s wildest natural spaces.
The exhibit celebrates the Wilderness Act, an integral element of the U.S.A’s conservation efforts that, since its adoption in 1964, has protected more than 109 million acres of American wilderness.
The exhibit was selected from more than 5,000 submissions from throughout the U.S. Many of the winning photos come from the stunning mountains and tundras of Alaska, the mossy mountain forests of the Pacific Coast, and the unique sandstone formations of the South-West – all regions worth exploring!
The exhibit will run through summer 2015.
