12/8/08: Naturalist and Artist Rosalie Winard

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT –

For many, the Great Salt Lake is little more than the infamous stink that periodically wafts over the valley. But consider this: some 5 million birds - 250 species - call the lake home. Artist Rosalie Winard is inspired by birds like the White Pelican and the Great Blue Heron, and she says she wants her images to emphasize each bird as part of a community. Winard's striking photography is on display at the Utah Museum of Natural History, and she joins us Monday to talk about her passion for beauty and the threats to the places these birds call home.

  • Rosalie Winard's exhibit, Wild Birds of the American Wetlands, is on display at the Utah Museum of Natural History through February 22nd. For more information, click here or call 801-581-6927.
