Nature’s Best Photography officially opened to the public on February 17.

The Nature’s Best Photography Awards project has been run exclusively in exhibition alliance with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

Originally created in 1995 to inspire a greater public appreciation of the natural world through the art of photography and the extraordinary talents of photographers of all ages and nationalities, each year it draws over 20,000 submissions.

Up to 50 stunning prints will be on display.

The only other place to find this exhibition in the country is at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History!

Support provided by the general operations support grants from the United Cultural Fund, a program of the Broome County Arts Council; the Conrad and Virginia Klee Foundation; the Zoos, Botanical Gardens and Aquariums Program, administered by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreational, and Historical Preservation; and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
