On November 15, Willapa Hills Audubon will host a program by well-known Washington photographer, naturalist and historian Alan Bauer. Alan is a professional photographer and a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest. Having grown up on a large family farm in Oregon's Willamette Valley he is now calling Washington State his home for the past 29 years.

The title of his program is "The Natural World Puts on a Show--Celebrating What's Right With the World!"

Alan Bauer's presentation starts at 7:00 pm in the Lower Columbia College Science Lecture Hall in Longview, WA. Admission is free and coffee and tea will be provided. For last-minute directions/changes due to weather etc check back here.

Celebrate what’s right with the world! Sometimes we just have to slow down or look more closely, but there is always something fascinating to appreciate right around us. Come spend an evening with professional photographer Alan L. Bauer as he shares an image intensive presentation sharing many of his personal celebrations. From hiking to birding to just standing still looking at what’s nearby, everywhere is something worth celebrating and making each day a better experience!

His work has been published in Backpacker, Odyssey, Northwest Runner, CityDog, Northwest Outdoors, Northwest Magazine, Oregon Coast, and Northwest Travel magazines to name a few.  Alan is perhaps best known in the region for his photography and co-author work with publisher The Mountaineers Books as part of the new "Day Hiking" guidebook series.  Waste Management, Columbia Basin Credit Union, University Volkswagen/Audi (Seattle) Seattle Children's Hospital, Bicycle Adventures, the City of Duvall (WA), and the Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge represent some of the recent corporate sales of Alan's images.
