South Plantation Seniors Learn from Renowned Everglades Photographer

Renowned Everglades photographer Clyde Butcher speaks to South Plantation High School students at Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Discovery and Science.

Twenty-five South Plantation High School seniors in the school’s Environmental Science and Everglades magnet program recently had a unique opportunity to learn from renowned Everglades photographer Clyde Butcher. Butcher is best known for his large black and white photographs taken in national parks, especially those taken in Floridaís Everglades.

Butcher’s photographs are currently on exhibit (through January 9) at Fort Lauderdale’s Museum of Discovery and Science. The students toured the exhibit, called Wilderness Visions of America, and were in the audience at Butcher’s live videoconference with other Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) students.  The videoconference was produced by BECON, BCPS television station.

The seniors had an opportunity to ask the photographer questions about his experiences, photographic equipment and future plans.  The students, all of whom are enrolled in an Environmental Humanities class, will complete a project that focuses on art, photography or literature.

For more information, contact South Plantation High School’s humanities teacher, Debbie Vogt at 754-323-1950.
