Did you know that your nature photographs can be used by scientists to learn more about the biology of plants, animals, and fungi?  In this program, we’ll take a leisurely tour of Prairie Ridge and photograph interesting things along the way.  You will also learn how to upload your photos to a variety of citizen science projects and to take the most helpful photos possible for the scientists who will use them for their research.  Dress for the weather, bring your camera — a fancy DSLR with all the bells and whistles, a point and shoot, or even your cell phone — and let’s photograph for science!  Beginning photographers are always welcome.  For more information or to register please contact Chris Goforth at 919.707.8882 or chris.goforth@naturalsciences.org.
