Ochopee, FL – Award-winning photographer Clyde Butcher will be at his Big Cypress Gallery during an Open House on Halloween weekend. On Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30, Butcher will exhibit — for the first time — all of his photographs of 33 National Parks that he has photographed over the past 50 years.
Butcher considers himself more a teacher than a photographer in hopes that, by sharing nature’s beauty, it is kept in a natural condition for future generations. This noble goal is one that aligns perfectly with the objectives of the National Park Service 100th year anniversary.
In addition to the exhibit, the Big Cypress National Preserve Rangers will be leading swamp walks every hour on the hour from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. behind the gallery during this special Open House event. The cost is $50 per person and children are free with paid adults.
All the proceeds from the walks will be donated to their Educational Department.
Big Cypress Gallery is located along the scenic Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41), 47 miles east of Naples and 36 miles west of Miami at Mile Marker 54.5, about half mile east of the Big Cypress National Preserve Oasis Visitor Center.
