Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge will host its April Photo Hike from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Saturday. This program is free and open to the public. Participants will meet at the Prairie Learning Center before leaving for a specified area on the Refuge.
Amateur and professional photographers of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring your own camera equipment, comfortable shoes/boots, long pants, bug spray, sun block, a water bottle and your sense of wonder. Weather permitting, be prepared to go off the walking trails. Photographers will have the opportunity to participate in a photography exhibit in November and December in the J.N. “Ding” Darling Art Gallery at the Refuge.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged by contacting Doreen Van Ryswyk at 515-994-3400 or Doreen_vanryswyk@fws.gov.
