Winter Wildlife Camp!

We explored the wetlands while learning the basics of nature photography!

During the Christmas vacation, from December 19 – 22, 2016, Wildlife in Focus and the Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve and Learning Center teamed up to offer Winter Wildlife Camp. This camp combined the best of hands-on science and wildlife photography.

The elementary-age kids took interactive hikes through the trails and participated in hands-on nature based activities. They also learned the fundamentals of digital nature photography by capturing images of nature, wildlife and natural resources

We were even featured on KRIS news:
