Illinois hunting and fishing

PSO blogger Gretchen Steele honored

February 05, 2010 at 04:30 PM

Kudos to photographer Gretchen Steele, who compiles the “Through the Lens” Web log for Prairie State Outdoors.com

Steele (right) is one of 22 photographers whose work was chosen to be displayed in the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission’s Illinois Natural Treasures Exhibit.Illinois hunting and fishing

The image chosen by the Illinois Nature Preserve Commission (pictured above) is “An Ancient’s Tale” and shows one of the many rock art scenes found at Piney Creek Nature Preserve in Randolph County.

The Illinois Nature Preserves Commission celebrated the addition of its 500th protected natural area in 2009. To recognize this accomplishment, the 2009 Outdoor Illinois magazine photo contest selected Illinois Nature Preserves and Land & Water Reserves as a theme.

The exhibit features 22 entries that showcase the beauty of Illinois protected natural areas. The opening reception for this exhibit will be Feb. 25 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Environmental Law and Policy Center in Chicago. The exhibit will run from Feb. 25 through June 2010 with viewing by appointment, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition to the primary exhibit, designed by the renowned Illinois State Museum at the Environmental Law and Policy Center, the exhibit of our State’s finest natural lands will serve as the INPC’s contribution to the Burnham Plan Centennial in Chicago. The INPC honors Cook County as the second largest landowner of INPC sites, surpassed only by the IDNR.

Additionally, The Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Natural Heritage will sponsor the photographic exhibit at their tent in Conservation World for the 2010 Illinois State Fair in Springfield, Illinois.

The Illinois State Museum will also design and create a professional presentation from the exhibit photographs which will be distributed to Illinois landowners,  partners, biologists, Illinois State Park Visitors Centers, interested educators and naturalists, and even other states interested in natural areas programs, to emphasize Illinois’ commitment to the protection of its most precious lands.
