We enjoyed our last photography hike of the season on May 26, 2018 at Brooker Creek Preserve. An enthusiastic group of photographers joined us for a surprisingly biting fly and mosquito free walk. We remembered last year’s hike at the end of May, and the rather quick march along the boardwalk through the swamp area, followed by hungry mosquitoes every step of the way!
Subtropical Storm Alberto made its way toward our area Saturday morning, and we arrived to clouds and rain. The forecast called for showers, so Karl prepared our classroom/roundtable session just in case. When rain or weather cancels one of our hikes, we move inside and do a classroom/roundtable with any photographers brave enough to chance the weather and arrive. It cleared enough that we hiked, and luckily the rain stayed away.
Next season we plan five programs: four hikes and one classroom session. The hikes coincide with the changes around Fall and the Fall wildflowers and take place the last Saturday of September and October, and the same for Spring in March and April. The classroom session, still in development, takes place the last Saturday in January. Please plan on joining us for some of all of these programs!
