Exhibit will feature national parks photos
A photo exhibit celebrating the 100th anniversary of American’s national parks is scheduled for 1 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center, 5096 Route 28.
The journey begins in Acadia National Park, then heads west, with photos of animals, birds and flowers set in mountain settings in the Southwest, Northwest and West. Photos are from Alan Via’s many trips and from some of his photographer friends.
Via is the author of “The Catskill 67 — A Hiker’s Guide to the Catskill 100 Highest Peaks Under 3,500 Feet” and a contributor to The Watershed Post, Adirondack Sports and Fitness, Adirondack magazine and other publications.
Via is one of only a handful of hikers to have completed both the Catskill and Adirondack 100 highest peaks.
The interpretive center is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily; and until 6:30 p.m. on Fridays.
