Wildflower Walk Planned for Mid-July

Save this date:  July 17!

Jim Edlhuber will be leading the annual wildflower walk and photo shoot at the Retzer Nature Center.  Below are the details from Jim:

Wildflower Walk and Photographing Wildflowers at Retzer Nature Center

Date: Tuesday July 17th and rain date the following day on Wednesday the July 18th starting at 7:30 am.

An ideal time for photographing wildflowers is mid July with the most amount of species blooming at one time, subject to recent weather conditions. This will be a great time to photograph wildflowers and learn some of the ID's of native plants at Retzer Nature Center. I would highly recommend a tripod for this event. I would expect the event to last about 2 hours but could run a little longer.
