Free Screening of Ned Smith Documentary

Ned Smith: Gone for the Day

WITF in partnership with the Pennsylvania Conservation Heritage Project continues to produce documentaries as part of an on-going effort to tell the story of the state’s rich conservation heritage and the people who helped protect our resources.

One of the many conservation heroes who helped shape Pennsylvania’s environmental heritage was self-trained artist, writer and naturalist Ned Smith. Over the span of 45 years, Smith made an important connection between art and conservation as he created thousands of astonishingly detailed drawings and paintings of wildlife.

Join us Friday, August 11, 2017 at 6pm at the Ned Smith Center for Nature & Art in Millersburg. Afterwards take part in a panel discussion focusing on Smith’s impact and legacy.

The event is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited so be sure to register to claim your spot today at
