2020VISION is the most ambitious nature photography project ever staged in the UK. The Street Gallery exhibition features more than 100 outstanding images taken in 20 locations throughout the UK, including The National Forest, celebrating landscape-scale restoration projects that benefit both wildlife and people. The event is coming to the Derbyshire town of Swadlincote on Monday 18th March running through to Sunday 7th April and will be on display 24 hours a day!

Some of the UK’s top wildlife photographers visited The National Forest over a period of 20 months. They captured inspirational landscapes that are loved and looked after by local people, and enrich us all.  The National Forest was selected as an outstanding example of regeneration on a landscape-scale, involving local communities and wider national partnerships.

The Forest features alongside other locations such as the Rutland Water Habitats project, Black Country Living Landscape, The Greater Thames Futurescape, Kinder Scout Restoration project, rewilding Scotland’s uplands, Wild Ennerdale in the Lake District and the restoration of the Cambridgeshire and East Anglian Fens.

The Street Gallery exhibition features over 100 huge photographs of wildlife and landscapes, arranged into 10 ecosystem displays featuring examples of different habitats.

The exhibition can be found at The Delph Market Square, Swadlincote Town Centre, DE11 0AD and is completely free to view.
