Bend, Ore. – The Conservation Alliance welcomes Evergreen, Colo.-based Bergreen Photography as its newest member. This new partnership will continue to help support and bolster The Conservation Alliance’s efforts to fund conservation organizations working to protect North America’s last wild spaces.
This husband and wife photography team is passionate about protecting the wild spaces in which they photograph and recreate – especially in the West.
“It feels like public lands are more threatened now than they have ever been, and my wife Brenda and I want to do our part to make sure they stay protected and accessible to the public,” said Marc Bergreen, co-founder of Bergreen Photography. “The time is now to put our dollars where our heart is and help ensure the wild spaces we love so much will be around for our daughter to explore. Having a daughter has given us new perspective on preserving lands for future generations. We’re not just preserving land for ourselves, we are preserving it for the people who aren’t born yet!”
“We are thrilled to welcome Bergreen Photography into The Conservation Alliance membership,” said John Sterling, Executive Director of The Conservation Alliance. “Marc and Brenda share our commitment to protecting wild places and with their support, we will continue to push forward key conservation projects.”
