Nature Photography

Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and of natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography. Find a program near you where you can learn the skill and develop the art of taking just the right photo of a wildflower, deer or colorful rock.  Then use what you learned and go out on your own! 

Activity Description

Assuming that nature photography will include walking for at least 30 minutes, one can assume that walking and taking photographs burns 100 calories.

Birding at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area
Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center

Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area is one of the premier birding spots in eastern Pennsylvania.  Join us for this birding tour of Middle Creek as we enjoy the sights and sounds of Snow Geese, Tundra Swans, and other waterfowl.  Cackling Geese and the rare Ross’s Goose have been located among the Snow Goose flocks during previous trips.  Bald Eagles and sometimes Golden Eagles have been seen.  Please dress for the weather and bring a lunch and binoculars.  This is a great opportunity for photographers.  Participants should meet at the Middle Creek Visitor Center at 10:00 AM.  For those interested, leaders will stay until dusk to look for Short-eared Owls and listen for American Woodcocks.  Registration is required.
