R • A• W Photography Series | Land of Forgotten Trees
Saturday Sept 23 | 10am – 1pm & Sunday Sept 24 | 9am – 12pm | $50 Workshop

For this R • A• W | Real Amazing Wildlife Photography Series we step into the beauty of the Forgotten Trees.

Massive Hickory, Chestnut and Oak trees dating hundreds of years old have created a beautiful hammock within these 148 acres of protected land. This property is part of the Hernando County Environmental Sensitive Lands and well-traveled and trails designed by Jim King our guest and guide for this Photography Series Workshop.

Sept 23 | Saturday | Day One: Our guest speaker and trail guide Jim King will give a lecture about the history of this preserve and what species thrive within the hammock life. Photographer Alice Mary Herden will talk about camera settings and what photographic elements you will be learning and experiencing.

Workshop is 3 hours from 10 am to 1pm at Chinsegut Conservation Center 23212 Lake Lindsey Road Brooksville, Florida.

Afterwards...Take a nice hike along the Nature Center Tract and detour to the Cypress Walk to get an amazing view of May's Prairie or hang out at the Bird & Butterfly Garden to photograph a wide variety of birds from Pileated Woodpeckers to Eastern Blue birds.

Sept 24 | Sunday | Day Two: Meeting up for the Hike.
