Explore the outdoors through photography, environmental education, outdoor recreation, and creative expression! 
Each week we’ll work to develop a deeper connection to nature by capturing photo moments and learning basic photography skills. We’ll start with a short photography lesson then set off on a hike with a new photography challenge in hand. At the end of the program series we’ll host a photo showcase to share our favorite shots of the year with the community.
