News from The Nature Conservancy:

On September 29, 2010— Governor Sonny Perdue announced the acquisition of 6,911 acres in Long County as part of the Townsend Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The property is located in the lower Altamaha River floodplain, one of the most valuable ecological corridors in Georgia. The Altamaha River is one of The Nature Conservancy priorities and TNC played a key role in this acquisition. In the January 1998 issue of National Geographic magazine the work of Peter Essick’s provided visual support to these efforts with an article: “Altamaha River: The Easy Ways of the Altamaha.” For complete details visit The Nature Conservancy web site.

Last Saturday (8/6) was Farmworker Appreciation day. In honor of the day, I am sharing some images by Pirkle Jones, Dorothea Lange and the final image by Ansel Adams.

Farmworker Appreciation Day was created to be a moment of action and appreciation for these workers and to raise awareness of the issues they face every year. Farmworkers help keep the world fed and work what is considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the first world, and yet they are often not protected by the same laws that protect other workers. This is due in part to their seasonal status and their tendency to be immigrant workers who return to their home country after the harvest is complete.

In honor of National Lighthouse Day, sharing some images by Tim Barnwell from his project documenting Georgia and Carolina Coastal Regions.

Lighthouses represent a piece of history. They have comforted travelers for centuries, guiding them and keeping them safe. They also add to some of the most scenic and majestic views. If you have ever visited a lighthouse before, you will know the stability and serenity they bring to the area. While time has progressed and technology has changed, lighthouses remind us of some of the difficult voyages people went on in the past. They provided hope to those looking for land while tackling the dark nights and stormy seas. So, it is only right that we celebrate them on National Lighthouse Day.

Lighthouses shown in this sequence are from St. Simons Island, GA (3), Tybee Island, GA and Hunting Island in SC.

The first Friday in August is International Beer Day. To celebrate the occasion, here is a photograph by Mario DiGirolamo of a man lost in thought at a London pub.

History of International Beer Day

And it was also created with the intention of showing appreciation for those involved in the making of beer.
