Journaling at the Refuge

Learn how to create a nature photo journaling project, beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. Learn how to look at your surroundings in a new way with Kristie Burns, a professional photojournalist. Participants will also learn basic photography techniques, principles of phenology (documenting plant and animal life cycles), and have the opportunity to experiment and improve their nature photography. Please bring your own camera; digital SLR cameras are recommended but any type of camera can be used. Phone cameras will not work for this workshop. The program will take place both indoors and outdoors so be prepared for the weather conditions and walking off the trails. Space is limited and registration is required.
