Welcome to Find-a-Photo
Welcome to the USDA Forest Service’s “Find-a-Photo", Website - the NatureWatch, Wildlife, Fish, and Threatened and Endangered Species Program's Photograph Library. Find-a-Photo allows you to access thousands of copyright free wildlife, fish, wildflower and environmental education photographs, donated by Forest Service employees and our partners and volunteers. Check back often since new photographs are being added quite frequently. If you are a first-time user, we encourage you to use our new “Simple Search” feature that helps you quickly explore the category of photographs you are seeking.
Once you find a photograph you would like to use, you may save it to your hard drive (right click on the photograph and select “save picture as”), copy and paste it into a document (right click and select "copy," then put your cursor on your document and right click again and select "paste"), or print it.
Please notice the additional links that are available once you enlarge a photograph. They are located to the right of the photograph. For example, if the photo was taken from a project in our database, there will be a link to that project located in the lower right corner of the page, where you can find out more information about the photograph. There are also small “camera icons” that link to other photographs with similar characteristics.
Please realize many people took significant amounts of time and energy to donate the photographs in this Photo Library. Their willingness to unselfishly share their photographs speaks volumes about their commitment to environmental and conservation education.
As a courtesy, we strongly encourage you to credit the photographer.
You may use any of these photographs for your personal use (school projects, educational activities, presentations, etc.).
NONE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS MAY BE USED FOR PROFIT!
