Clyde in front of the Rookery Bay
Environmental Learning Center.
Rookery Bay is an outstanding environmental
center dealing with the aquatic preserves of
Florida. They are located in Naples and have
many wonderful opportunities for the folks
in the community to get to know the
environment in which they live.
We are proud to join with them, and the
United Art Council of Collier County,
every year to present a juried exhibit of
photographs that represent the beauty
of the flora and fauna of our state.
The best piece of sculpture of alligators
we have ever seen is in front of the
Rookery Bay center.
Years ago Clyde had made a poster for
Rookery Bay...they still have a few around.
Here, Clyde is signing one for one of
the employees of Rookery Bay
Wonderful crowd came to see the exhibit.
It was great to see such a powerful interest
in the photography of Florida's environment!
