Registration required. All levels. Join us for the opportunity to photograph the sea of Virginia bluebells that bloom each spring in the Meramec River bottomlands. Weather permitting, we will use our Wilderness Wagon to transport participants to within a short distance of the bluebell “show.” This is not a formal class. However, photographer Scott Avetta will be on hand to offer techniques and suggestions to get the most out of this experience. There is potential for every lens. Capture a field of bluebells with a wide-angle lens or hone in on its delicate bloom with a macro lens—and everything in between. Participants should have a basic working knowledge of their camera. Dress for being outdoors and wear comfortable shoes for walking a short distance over uneven terrain. Designed for adults only.

When the bluebells are nearing their peak, you will be contacted. Come prepared for a short walk.
