The majestic expanse of Cades Cove in the winter with snow on the mountains, frost on the meadows, icicles hanging from tree branches and a waterfall surrounded by the colors of fall provide wonder, joy, and comfort.  Photographers have a unique opportunity to share this beauty with others who are confined to a home or who need encouragement.

The following photographers are available to provide slideshows at nursing homes, assisted living homes, veteran’s homes, senior centers, and other facilities at no cost to the facility.  Also, the Southern Appalachian Nature Photographers club encourages members to provides presentations in a community outreach program (see www.sanp.net/outreach.html).
