This field trip is a good opportunity to walk and talk in nature while taking photos in this 300 Hectare Conservation Area.

I’ve included some macro photography tips in this write-up in case members wish to try macro photography in this natural setting as we build a portfolio for our Digital #3 (Macro) competition.

Members are encouraged to explore the area at their own pace and not feel tethered to the group. We will reconvene at Noon near the Picnic Pavilions where members can socialize from a minimum 2-meter distance while enjoying their own packed lunch.
