From our start in 1986, Vanguard’s mission has been to help our customers explore their world and experience the outdoors. Our dedication to photography and nature comes from a deep love and appreciation for life, culture, nature, and the outdoors. We hope you use the resources on this page to explore nature and birding in your backyard, at your bird feeder, or any off the beaten path destination your travels take you.
Conservation doesn’t just happen by chance; those who came before us made the conscious decision to conserve our wild places for future generations to enjoy. We experience this legacy of conservation each time we stop to appreciate our natural world. To protect the beauty of our natural world, Vanguard encourages our customers share their love of birding, hiking, exploration, nature, and the outdoors with someone new to these experiences. Only through helping someone new explore our world, will more people gain a deeper appreciation and understand the need to preserve our wild places.
