Mohonk Preserve is pleased to present our 2019 calendar featuring the magnificent images of our Mohonk Preserve Volunteer Photographers, along with natural history observations from our Conservation Science team!
Along with great seasonal images of the Preserve, each month includes natural history observations that serve as a guide to what you might experience during a visit to the Preserve. The weather data is based on both average and record-setting temperature and precipitation figures from the Preserve’s Daniel Smiley Research Center. Thanks to the Preserve’s outstanding Conservation Science team, research associates and interns, and citizen naturalist volunteers who are helping to increase understanding of the effects of climate change on weather, flora and fauna through their work.
Throughout the year, our Mohonk Preserve Volunteer Photographers generously donate their time and expertise to capture photos of scenic views, people enjoying the land, plants and animals, Preserve programs and special events, and more for the Preserve’s publications, website, social media, and exhibits.
The goal of the Mohonk Preserve Volunteer Photographers is to capture the Preserve visually and share those images to build awareness of the Preserve and its mission of protecting the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspiring people to care for, enjoy and explore their natural world. The group meets monthly to discuss upcoming assignments and share their knowledge of photography through special workshops and group hikes.
Thanks to the Mohonk Preserve Volunteer Photographers and talented staff members, the Preserve now has an archive of over 20,000 images spanning over half a century. The photographers also have an ongoing seasonal display of their work in the Mohonk Preserve Visitor Center Conference Room.
