The USDA Online Photo Center provides a complimentary source of high-quality digital photographs, a select few of which appear on these web pages. There are 24 categories of photographs and subcategories within those sections. The pictures illustrate a wide variety of human and natural topics from the present as well as a rare collection of historical photographs from the 1930's and 1940's. The images are connected to captions which explain the area and the scene depicted in the photograph. The digital collection has grown to over 20,000 images and continues to grow. From this site you may also search and order photographs that do not appear in digital format. Many of these photographs show examples of natural resource management issues and effectively illustrate natural conditions in regions across the country.
