Seasonal Walk


Journey of Discovery
"Through the Lens"


Join us, camera in hand, for our 4th in a series of seasonal guided walks, through Thomas Miner Nature Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary, where currently a year-long Wildlife and Botanical Survey is being conducted. Bruce Fellman, naturalist, professional photojournalist and one of our seven survey volunteers, will be our guide. He has used his camera to document the amphibians, reptiles, dragonflies, butterflies and many more species on the Preserve. He’ll share his photographic tips and techniques as we stroll through the Sanctuary. It will be the peak of the autumn migration season, so we hope to see and ‘capture’ images of migrating hawks, Monarch butterflies and other insects, which will be leaving us for warmer climates. The biology of migration and how these wondrous travelers find their way will be discussed. Walk will be approximately 1½ hours long, on flat terrain with frequent stops.

ALL ages welcome.

NO fee.
