Local nature photographer John Fielder presents photos in Silverthorne

Renowned landscape photographer and conservationist John Fielder will present a collection of his photography, “A Celebration of 50 Years of Colorado Wilderness,” at the Silverthorne Pavilion on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at 6:30 p.m.

The event is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act and the 20th anniversary of Friends of the Eagles Nest Wilderness, a local nonprofit partner with the White River National Forest.

Fielder, who lives in the Acorn Creek area of Silverthorne, will display more than 200 images in a 75-minute presentation with music and share stories from his 40 years exploring and photographing wilderness.

Books, calendars and other merchandise featuring his work will be on sale, and Fielder will donate 30 percent of the proceeds to the nonprofit.

Admission is free and, befitting a birthday party, cake and lemonade will be served, said Currie Craven, board chairman of the nonprofit. A similar event in Eagle County drew about 300 people, he said, and he is hoping for a comparable turnout.

The event is sponsored by Friends of the Eagles Nest Wilderness, the town of Silverthorne, Beaver Run Resort and the Dillon Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service.
