Looking to Improve Your Photography Skills?

We are excited to announce that on Saturday, May 22 from 9 am-3:30, nature photographer, Sol Levine, will be teaching a photography workshop here at the Park.

Geared for beginners and intermediate level photographers, this class can help you become more comfortable with your camera. In addition to learning how to compose images in an outdoor setting, the workshop will also discuss your photography equipment and the affect that the changing outdoor lighting has on it. Budding photographers from 14-years-old and older with enthusiasm, curiosity, and a bit of patience are welcome to participate in this course.

Sol is an award-winning nature photographer whose work has appeared in books, magazines and calendars, as well as museums and art centers. His most recent award was in a Canon Worldwide Photo Contest. Fuji Film has used Sol’s photographs in show booths and two were chosen for an exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Sol is a member of the Carolina Nature Photographer’s Association, the North Carolina Master Photographers Association and the North Carolina Wildlife Artists Society.

Celebrating Members and Birds

Here are a few pictures from our Waterfowl Reuinion and Migratory Bird Day events. Members enjoyed meeting many of our outreach animals up close as well as brunch and touring the Park. Many were also able to witness the grand opening of our new Beaver Pond Blind, which was made possible by funding from Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.

Hope to you all get a chance to come out and see some of our new changes soon!
