“So Many Parks – So Little Time - Celebrating our National Parks’ Centennial” an exhibit of photography capturing iconic as well as unusual scenes from our National Parks throughout the U.S. This year is the centennial year for the National Park Service (NPS). Great Falls photographer and author Dee Leggett takes the viewer from Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska, through Olympic and Mount Rainier national parks in Washington to Yosemite National Park in California. From there she travels to the very first national park, Yellowstone in Wyoming and south to the border to Big Bend in Texas. She comes east to Acadia in Maine and heads back home to D.C. and Great Falls National Park. All this in one compact exhibit. Great Falls Park is celebrating its 50 year anniversary as a part of the National Park System.
Dee and her husband Bob have been visiting our national Parks for over 40 years, enjoying, learning about, and photographing the protected natural areas as well as the historical and cultural areas. They have hiked, biked, rafted, canoed and camped. They have been in parks from above the Arctic Circle to south of Key West and from coast to coast. Dee and Bob are both members of the Advisory Board for the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA). She is an advocate for the national parks and encourages people to go visit, especially during this centennial year.
Dee portrays the magnificent diversity of our national parks at Katie’s Coffee House at 760 Walker Road in Great Falls, from May 2–31, 2016. Dee is a member of Great Falls Studios and has been exhibiting her photography for more than 10 years. Visit DeeLeggettPhotography.vpweb.com or email her at DeeLeggett@aol.com.
