Today is Nature Photography Day!

Every year on June 15th, the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) celebrates and promotes the enjoyment of nature photography.  Today is also an opportunity to have conversations about conservation of our plants, wildlife, and landscapes.

So grab your camera, or even a sketchbook, and head outdoors to join in the celebration!  Whether you take a hike, go on a trip to the beach, or just step out into your back yard – today is a great day to appreciate the beautiful natural world that surrounds us.

If you would like to join the online conversation, share your nature photographs online using #NaturePhotographyDay.
