Biscayne National Park Centennial Poster Unveiling
Join us for the unveiling of the Centennial Poster for Biscayne National Park Friday, January 6, during Gables Gallery Night at the Coral Gables Museum. CVC is the proud sponsor of the poster which commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service.
The limited edition poster features a spectacular photograph of the pristine mangrove coastline and the waters of Biscayne Bay that define our Nation’s largest marine park.
Photographer Barry Fellman will be on hand to sign posters at the unveiling and closing reception for the Museum’s National Park exhibition “This Land Is Your Land: A Second Century for America’s National Parks”. The event will feature a live performance by folk musician Grant Livingston and Park Ranger Gary Bremen of “Songs and Stories of our National Parks”.
Biscayne National Park is home to Biscayne Bay’s shallow waters, underwater coral reefs, the first islands of the Florida Keys and the coastal mangrove swamp of the poster image. These four ecosystems provide a protected environment from the ocean that is vitally important to South Florida’s tourism, recreational and commercial interests. About 70 percent of the fishes and marine life important to these industries are spawned and nurtured in the area’s shallow water and mangrove habitats. A wealth of information about the park’s wide variety of fishes, plant and animal life is available online at its website nps.gov/bisc .
With CVC’s sponsorship, 100% of the proceeds from poster sales will go directly to Biscayne National Park to support park programs.
