ST. LOUIS, MO.: Explore Green™ has formed a collaboration with Braided River, a division of Mountaineer Books, to promote conservation through speaking engagements and photography exhibits featuring Braided River’s acclaimed cast of authors and photographers.
“We believe Braided River’s superlative writers and photographers deserve the largest possible audience to inspire and enlighten all of us about the magnificent subjects they portray in their words and images,” said Paul Zemitzsch, president of Explore Green™. “The art of literature and photography will move many to understand the importance of preserving our wild places and its inhabitants.”
Explore Green™ and Braided River have also begun discussions to create new publishing projects using Explore Green™’s team of worldwide experts.
“Braided River connects people to wild places through beautiful images and fascinating stories that ignite passion and inspire stewardship.
