<p>Photographer Florian Schulz will offer a spectacular multimedia slide presentation to the George Mason University community and talk about the <a href=Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative on Tuesday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Cinema.

Schulz is a professional nature and wildlife photographer dedicated to the support of conservation efforts to protect endangered ecosystems. His book, “Yellowstone to Yukon – Freedom to Roam,” was named one of the Top Ten Outstanding Books of the Year under the category “Most Likely to Save the Planet” by the Independent Book Publishers (IPPY Awards).

During his presentation, which is sponsored by New Century College, Schulz will highlight the importance of North America’s most ambitious conservation project, Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y).

Y2Y is a joint Canadian-U.S. network of more than 800 organizations, institutions, foundations and conservation-minded individuals working to restore and maintain the unique natural heritage of the region spanning from Yellowstone National Park to the Yukon. The initiative began in late 1993.

“The vision of Y2Y is a gift that future generations will be able to cherish forever,” says Schulz on his web site. “Through my work, I hope to fuel the new conservation movement of connectivity, and perhaps sharing my photography will move people’s hearts to get involved in saving North America’s greatest treasure.”

Schulz’s integrative and full-feature multimedia presentation will feature several hundred images spanning more than 2,000 miles from the Yukon to Yellowstone National Parks. His multidisciplinary work features insight from both scientific and artistic fields.

“His presentations have received top reviews nationwide, and we are most excited about having him at George Mason University,” says Tom Wood, associate professor in New Century College.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged at ncc@gmu.edu to help estimate attendance. For more information, contact Wood at twood@gmu.edu.
