A noted conservationist, Clyde Butcher has been recognized as a humanitarian working for the betterment of his community. His work is designed to inspire spirituality and respect for nature: “My hope is to educate, to let people know our land is a special place and to inspire others to work together to save nature’s places of spiritual sanctuary for future generations.” One of Butcher’s large photographic prints is presented in the auction, depicting the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge. In addition to the available photographs, this sale offers a wooden sign reading “Visit Latin Quarter” from the 1950s.
