Braided River partners with talented wildlife photographers and writers to create large-format books that celebrate unique wild places in North America. We believe that images and stories have the power to inspire individuals to take action to protect precious wild places that are in danger of disappearing. Our books are used by conservation organizations across the country to reach policy makers, thought leaders, and the public. Our books are published under the conservation imprint of Mountaineers Books - also called Braided River.
Braided River was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to support media campaigns, multimedia presentations, and museum exhibits that go “beyond the book” to engage audiences outside the traditional environmental core. We work with prestigious museums like the Burke Museum in Seattle, Washington, to create high-quality exhibits that travel across the country. Several of our touring exhibits have been on display for more than 5 years.
Passionate and informed wildlife photographers behind each of our projects give multimedia presentations across the country. Presentations include images, audio and video recordings, and personal stories that bring wilderness to life in museums and theaters.
Our work is made possible through generous contributions from foundations and individuals.
