Pretty pictures of national park vistas are commonplace, and can take our breath away. But how would you react to a photo that showed the crumbling side of the parks?
A Utah-based photographer is setting out on the road this summer to chronicle how budget cuts and under-funding in general are impacting the parks, and he could use our help. Chris Mabey will be touring 10 parks in the Rockies and the West Coast to show how budget cuts are affecting the national parks and why the national parks are worth protecting.
"There has been a lot of talk of how these cuts will affect the national parks, but I want to show the world how the parks are affected and I need your help to do it," says Mr. Mabey. "I believe that pictures of how the national parks are hurting under these budget cuts will be much more powerful than the articles written about them."
To get the job done, Mr. Mabey, a student at Brigham Young University, could use our help. Check out his project on Kickstarter and consider donating to the cause.
