1,900 Photos and Counting!

2012 May 9

There are birds and bees, tires and trees. Each photo represents a moment in our environment today.

These individual moments are creating a collective picture of our challenges and our successes from 2011-2013; this snapshot in time.

Forty years ago, Documerica began collecting stories and images that would become the visual baseline that would forever after, show the environmental conditions and way of life in the United States at a time when EPA’s work was just beginning.

Today, State of the Environment is your chance to tell the stories of change, progress, and current challenges: globally.

What’s happening where you live? Is your city or town creating more green space? Less? Can you eat the fish from a nearby waterway? If not, why not? How healthy is our air? Where does our food come from?

Every place, is part of our shared environment. Every one of us are making daily choices that impact our surroundings, one way or another. Grab your camera, even a camera phone, to document today’s picture.

Forty years from now, what will we have to show for the State of our Environment?

Submit up to two photos a week through Flickr.

    Please look to and document all the many areas of the country that have been devastated by Hydrofracking. Unless our govenment acts soon, the current devastation will multiply many fold. Clean safe water for all will be but a distant memory.
