Register now for this free event showcasing the beauty and wonder of Missouri’s prairies and other habitats, and the diversity of plants and animals they harbor.
Missouri is a meeting point of North America’s Eastern deciduous forest and the Great Plains, with microhabitats of each of these mighty ecosystems creating astonishing riches of natural wealth and breathtaking beauty.
The Missouri Prairie Foundation and the Neosho Arts Council invite all to enjoy a photographic presentation from Missouri photographer Matt Miles on November 17, 2018 that showcases the wonder of the state’s prairie, forest, woodland, stream, glade, and other landscapes of Missouri and the wildlife that depend on them.
“I have been fortunate to have spent more than two decades exploring Missouri and capturing its natural beauty through photography,” said Miles, of Rogersville, MO. “Selecting images from my collection to create Missouri, Wild and Wonderful was a labor of love, and I’m thrilled it has been so warmly received. I’m eager to present photographs from the book, and share the stories behind them, in Neosho.” Published in 2017, Missouri, Wild and Wonderful was recently selected as a top three Finalist at the 2018 International Book Awards competition.
Sponsored by the Missouri Prairie Foundation and the Neosho Arts Council, the Missouri, Wild and Wonderful presentation will be held in the Community Room at the Neosho/Newton County Library, 201 Spring Street, Neosho, MO, on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7:00 p.m. A brief introduction to the conservation work of the Missouri Prairie Foundation, including prairie protection in the Neosho area, will precede Miles’ presentation, and light refreshments will be served. Miles will also sell and sign copies of his book following the presentation.
“We are very excited to help bring Matt Miles to our community,” said Sarah Serio, President, Neosho Arts Council. “His outstanding work in capturing the beauty of nature with a camera lens is a true work of art. We believe that art and photography can bring awareness to any cause including the preservation of our unique prairie and other habitats in Missouri. We encourage everyone to join us for this event.”
