National Capture the Sunset Week

July 18, 2021 - July 24, 2021

The third week of July is special: It’s National Capture the Sunset Week!  As the mellow calm of summer seeps in, this is the perfect time to admire the many colors of the sunset.  From vivid oranges to vibrant pinks, deep purples and streaks of red, sunsets are a magnificent sight.

Sunsets are one of nature’s prettiest pictures, but not every night produces a brilliant tapestry of color at sunset.  As a result, we need a full week of watching sunsets, in hopes of catching one or two brilliant, magnificent sunsets.

Visit one of our preserves, grab your camera or preferred art medium, and capture the moment. Then, share it with others on social media using the hashtag of the preserve (i.e. #meadowbrooknaturepreserve or #seidnerduneandswale), as well as #heinzetrust, and #nationalcapturethesunsetweek.
