As you walk and learn, you will be invited to take photographs of your favorite findings. Following the walk and ID portion, there will be time in the covered Stevens Pavilion to learn how to transform your photographs into illustrations. Books and other images will also be provided.  Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.
