“Art is an important part of how people communicate about the world,” said Salida District Ranger J. Perry Edwards. “Because public lands serve a wide variety of people, we hope the residency artists can help others view the forest in ways we haven’t thought of before."
As more people visit public lands for the first time, the Forest Service works to expand education on what our motto caring for the land and serving the people means for these shared spaces. Art can communicate important messages in meaningful ways visitors may take with them on their next trip to America’s public lands.
