Photographer's Statement:

To me, ‘Healthy Tree, Healthy Me’ means caring for your local environment is essential to your enjoyment and recreation in that environment. For me, that means mountain biking and cycling in the Boise National Forest and Boise Foothills while also being self conscious and aware of my footprint and ecological impacts. Because of this awareness, I’m able to observe beautiful wildlife and landscape while also improving my physical and mental health. -Emery Huszar
