She was in the process of carving two large cranes drawn by John James Audubon when she attended a Friends in the Columbia Gorge event and was inspired by a presentation about the Preserve the Wonder campaign.

Each print is 26 by 40 inches and printed on Rives BFK cream heavyweight paper. The series will not be numbered but limited to what is sold before December 2017.
How to purchase: Prints are $350 each. $100 of the purchase price of each print will be donated to Preserve the Wonder. To purchase, go to Sally's Gilchrist's website, sallygilchrist.com, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
