In a New Light

Photographer/counselor Ben Thwaits takes young people from the Northwest Passage treatment center into the wild armed with cameras, as part of a program called “In a New Light.”  Located near Spooner, Ben thought it might be therapeutic for teens to express themselves through nature photography - an idea that the National Parks Service called one of “America’s Best Ideas of 2010”.

For more information on the program and to see some of the incredible photographs produced by Ben and his students visit the Northwest Passage blog

Randy Cornelius boils down the sap. Collecting sap from the trees.

Spring smells especially sweet in a Wisconsin sugar bush. The Oneida Nation has tapped trees to make maple syrup in March and April for thousands of years. These photographs show tribal member Randy Cornelius tapping trees and boiling down the sap on the Oneida Reservation.
