Support Great Basin Institute in Serving Public Lands in the West

GBI Media Contest July 2022 Submissions

GBI Media Contest July 2022 Submissions

The theme for July’s media contest was “America the Beautiful”. Well, that’s certainly something that our field personnel would know about. GBI deploys people in places throughout the West with such stunning sights that we are constantly reminded of what makes the work that we do so valuable.

The winner of the contest is Katie Kline, an AmeriCorps member serving as a rangeland/botany technician. Of the image at the top of this page she writes, “I was in awe of the dramatic lighting as a storm moved over the High Sierra District of Sierra National Forest in July 2022.”
