Tuesday, 2/4/20 Photographing From Your Garden

Would you like to take better pictures of flowers, birds, and wildlife in your landscape? This program will cover ways to do that whether using a smartphone or a mirrorless/DSLR (digital single lens reflex) or something in between. Plus along the way, you’ll get a better idea of whether it would ever be worth it to you to use something other than a smartphone.

Tuesday, 3/3/20  Illinois Beach State Park – A Biological Hot Spot

Illinois Beach State Park is a truly unique area and the last remaining undeveloped shoreline in Illinois.  The diversity of the area is frequently overlooked at first glance because it appears as only lake, beach and a large wetland. This presentation will include a history of the park and photos of threatened and endangered species that inhabit unique areas of the park.  As with any natural area there are a variety of environmental changes occurring. Some of the challenges of managing a natural area will also be included.

7:00 pm – 8:45 pm
