The Library is pleased to host the work of award-winning photographer Dawn Wilson, now through August. Dawn specializes in capturing breathtaking wildlife and landscape images of the high latitudes and high altitudes of the Rocky Mountains and Alaska. The public is invited to visit and see her works on both the Library’s first and second floor.

“Wildlife photography isn’t just about pretty portrait photos,” says Dawn, “but includes images that tell the story about where they live, how they live, and what affects their habitat.”

Dawn’s writing and photography have been published in regional and national magazines, including Outdoor Photographer, MotorHome magazine, Colorado Outdoors, Colorado Life, and many more. She is also a member of the Board of Directors for the North America Nature Photographers Association and frequently presents to camera clubs, nature organizations, and youth groups about photography and the outdoors.

In 2015, she began a 15-month journey across the U.S. full-time to photograph and document some of the most amazing wildlife and landscapes. She is currently working on the adventure narrative telling the story of adversity, love and nature on the road.
