PRESCOTT – The community’s “key assets” of Granite Dells and Willow and Watson lakes are the focus of a new display at the viewery at the Prescott Public Library.

The display – “Granite Dells and the Lakes – Central to Arizona” – will occupy the entire viewery throughout the month of June, at the Prescott Public Library, 215 E. Goodwin St.

A public reception will take place this evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to allow the community to browse the display’s photos and information.

The display consists of more than 30 large photographs in professional gallery mounts of Granite Dells and the lakes. The photos represent the work of acclaimed nature photographer Walt Anderson, and master printer Joe Phillips.

Along with celebrating the beauty of the scenery, the exhibit also urges citizens, including decision-makers, to prioritize protection and wise stewardship of the natural assets, according to Anderson’s website.

“I have been in love with the spectacular Granite Dells with their Watson and Willow lakes since coming to Prescott College, and that relationship grows closer every year,” Anderson wrote in an invitation, adding that the display allows him to combine his involvement with conservation efforts with his passion for photography.

Anderson is coordinating the display for “The Watershed We Want” – a consortium of about 10 conservation- and education-minded entities and efforts.

More information about the display is available at Anderson’s website at www.geolobo.com.
