The Wilderness Preserve will be hosting its 29th Annual Spring Meeting this coming Memorial Day weekend, Saturday May 28th, at the Madeline Island Museum. The event will be an evening reception with an informal buffet of elegant and hearty hors d’oeuvres, choice wine service, and coffee/tea and assorted desserts. A social gathering and food service begins at 7:00 pm, with the program beginning at 8:00 pm.


Living within the Lake Superior region, Jeff ventures out in every season with camera and sleeping bag. Jeff captures candid images of nature few of us will ever glimpse. Through his photographs, he will take us on a circle tour of Superior and its surroundings.    


Jeff Richter is an award winning, nationally-published nature photographer. His journey with film and camera began over 20 years ago. Jeff has had hundreds of images appearing in print since then. Sierra Club, Audubon, The Nature Conservancy, NorthWord Press, Brown Trout, Willow Creek, Wisconsin Trails Magazine, Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel and LoonWatch are among the publishers and organizations that have used Jeff's images.

In 2001, Jeff won an I.R.M.A. Award from the International Regional Magazine Association for his photo essay on albino deer. In 2002, he placed two finalists in the BBC/British Gas International Photographer of the Year awards. Long-time publishers of Wisconsin Trails magazine, Howard and Nancy Mead, have called Jeff the best nature photographer in the state. Wisconsin Public Radio host Larry Mueller has been trumpeting his admiration for Jeff's images for many years.
