Nature Photography Group
For more than 20 years, members of Friends interested in nature photography have met at the Arboretum to sharpen their technical skills and share their work with fellow members. Members range from novice photographers to highly regarded nature photographers who have exhibited in various venues around the area -- and beyond.
The group currently meets at 7 p.m. in the Arboretum Visitor Center on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May. Programs are informative and inspiring and often feature guest experts. For more information, call 608-263-7760, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
