Due to its popularity we have again arranged a visit to the Butterfly Conservatory for Saturday Mar. 4, 2017. As in the past, we have been granted exclusive access to the facility from 8:00 am until 10:00 am. During this time we can use our tripods. At 10:00 am the Conservatory opens to the general public and they ask that we put our tripods away. An added bonus is that we are welcome to spend the day at the conservatory after it is opened to the general public. Another bonus as a result of changes to image entry rules, your butterfly photos can be entered in the Nature Category as well as any of the open or special competition categories.
We are committed to have a minimum of 20 participants so the cost is the same as in the past at $20 per person. If you intend to participate it is very important that you let me know ASAP via email or by adding your name to the sign-up sheet that will be available at the Feb. 8, 2017, club meeting.
On the date of the event, we will meet in behind the main conservatory parking area which is designated as the Buses and Overflow Parking Area at 7:45 am SHARP. Once inside we can store our gear and winter clothing is an area provided for our use by the Conservatory.
Members of other local camera clubs are welcome and we will accommodate as space is available. If you are interested please send me an email with your intentions.
We look forward to you joining us for this fun event.
