Reception at Capitol Grill recognized commencement
of Images for Conservation Fund photography exhibit at Texas Capitol
AEP Texas sponsored a reception from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Capitol Grill on Monday, Feb. 28. The reception recognized commencement of the Images for Conservation Fund exhibit at the Texas Capitol. The exhibit begins Monday, Feb. 28 and concludes Friday, March 4 in the lower Rotunda.
The Images for Conservation Fund (ICF) was established to foster greater wildlife preservation by promoting nature tourism on private land. The non-profit organization hopes to encourage private landowners to allow nature photographers from around the world on their land. Doing so promotes wildlife conservation and also creates economic benefits to the entire area.
Thanks to support by Representative Richard Peña Raymond of Laredo, the Images for Conservation Fund will be displaying images taken during the group’s three Pro-Tour of Nature Photography contests. The display will include photographs taken in the Hill Country, the Coastal Bend area and the Laredo area.
