With both resignation and sadness, we’ve announced that the Nature Photography Celebration planned for April 19-21, 2020, in Asheville, NC, has been cancelled.

If you were registered to attend, please check your email for important information that requires your action.

Central to NANPA’s mission is a commitment to being good stewards of the communities that we inhabit, and a promise not to let the desire for a better photograph endanger the lives of others. With these tenets and careful consideration of public health officials’ advice to large event planners in mind, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel this event.

We know that some of our members are in the population at highest risk for the coronavirus (COVID-19), and other members are juggling to accommodate changing childcare, school, and workplace situations that present new and unexpected demands. 

This article may be helpful in understanding how cancellations and self-quarantines can be useful during the COVID-19 outbreak.
