Description

Join Wildlife Refuge Manager Steve Emmons as we travel to the Llano Seco Viewing Platform to photograph the refuge. This trip is intended for youths between 9 and 17 years of age. During the field trip, we will discuss different types of light and how to compose good photographs, and, of course, we will practice photographing some of the birds and other subjects found near the viewing platform. We will also make use of stuffed mounts as part of the learning process. You will need to bring your own camera. Participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is no charge for the adult.
