About the Photographer & the Exhibit
Robert (Bob) Wick, an avid nature and landscape photographer for many years, serves as the California Coastal National Monument’s resident photographer. In his current position as the U.S. Department of the Interior - Bureau of Land Management’s Arcata Field Office Planning and Environmental Coordinator and the California Coastal National Monument Northern California Coordinator, Bob had the opportunity to take photographs throughout much of California, from the rugged North Coast to the expansive California Desert. In April of 2006, armed with a Canon EOS 5D” 12.8 megapixel digital camera, Bob took on the assignment of visiting the five initial California Coastal National Monument (CCNM) Gateway locations and taking at least one poster quality photo for each gateway. This resulted in the five CCNM posters displayed here and more than 400 photos associated with the CCNM Gateways. The exhibit features the photos of Bob Wick and the CCNM Gateways.
