Intersection: Field Sports and the Evolution of Conservation looks at books in the National Sporting Library and Museum collection that are about early gamekeeping and poaching laws, the emergence of the hunter-naturalist, and the development of early conservation laws by sportsmen.
Paintings, sculptures, and prints from the 19th century enrich the exhibit. In addition, there are books, sketches, and paintings by three contemporary artists who have continued in the tradition of Walton and Audubon by conversing about and recording wildlife.
