Field Trip: Newman Wetlands Center

October 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

In October, in lieu of our monthly meeting, join GNPA for a members only field trip to the Newman Wetlands Center. The Newman Wetlands Center, located approximately 20 minutes south of Atlanta, offers a variety of opportunities to photograph the diverse flora and fauna of the southeast wetlands. As we stroll the board walk that circles the wetlands, we will keep an eye out for woodpeckers, songbirds, hawks, herons, wood ducks, turtles, frogs, lizards, and insects of all sorts.

Expect to walk up to 1 mile. Wear comfortable walking shoes. You may want to bring water, snacks, or lunch. Depending on the weather, you may need bug repellant and sun screen.

Equipment: Tripod, multiple lenses from Macro to Wide-Angle to Telephoto. Polarizer or other filters are also recommended.

Remember, as with any field trip, do not leave anything out in your car while on the trails. Keep any possessions in the trunk of your car. And always take a trash bag to pick up and clean while on field trips. Leave only footprints.

Due to liability issues, you must be a current GNPA member to participate in a GNPA fleld trip.
Please be aware that if you have registered on the Meetup site, but have not registered on the official GNPA website, you are not yet a GNPA member.

To join GNPA, go to the GNPA Website to join and register, www.gnpa.org.

Safety first. Nature photography includes inherent risks which all participants must evaluate for themselves as to the safety of any activity based on their personal abilities. Be constantly aware of your surroundings and any potential hazards which could result in injury to you or others. No photograph is worth your health. Do not place yourself in danger.
