Nature Sightings images and videos show the many species of wildlife that make their homes in the SVT region.

SVT cares for some of this region’s most important forests, wetlands, and grasslands—natural areas that support wildlife habitat that is crucial to the species we feel lucky to see on walks, in our back yards, and in fleeting glimpses on roadsides.

SVT is grateful to the many members and friends who share their photographs and videos for everyone to enjoy. In addition to displaying the images on this page, we also post selected images to our Facebook and Instagram pages, and we send a monthly Nature Sightings e-newsletter to interested subscribers.
