Free Wildflower Seminar and Photo Walk at Hobbs State Park

Interested in wildflower photography using any camera available? If so, then this class may be helpful as you seek to improve the quality of your wildflower and flora photos. 

Joan Reynolds from the Ozark Chapter of the Arkansas Native Plant Society will be leading the program off with a presentation and discussion on spending time in the field to learn more about native plants, including discussion of non-native plants and habitat restoration. 

In the second part of the program, equipment and techniques will all be discussed to help you achieve the desired artistic vision for your photography. The class will feature nature photographer Tim Johnson from the Photographic Society of NWA as your instructor. After the indoor presentation, if the weather cooperates, the session will use the grounds and lovely wildflower beds around the Hobbs visitor center for some hands-on practice and demonstration. Remember to bring a camera, any type will do, and a tripod if you have one.

Where: Hobbs State Park visitor center: located on Hwy 12 just east of the Hwy 12/War Eagle Road intersection
