Free photography program offered at Wildlife Center

Improve your outdoor photography skills at a free program scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 24, at the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education.

The program is suitable for ages 12 and older. Wildlife educators will cover the basics of outdoor photography, including how to compose shots effectively.

The outdoor photography program coincides with a turkey-hunting program also hosted by the Pisgah Center on March 24.

“We intentionally scheduled the photography and turkey-hunting programs to overlap to appeal to families with diverse outdoor interests,” said Lee Sherrill, wildlife education program coordinator for the Pisgah Center. “Whether people want to take on the challenge of turkey hunting or learn to shoot photos in a variety of outdoor situations, they all will learn about safely and responsibly enjoying wildlife recreation.”

Call to reserve a spot. The center is located on U.S. 276 in Transylvania County.
