Youth Photography Walks at Steigerwald Lake NWR
Students ages 10-18 years old, you are invited to Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge to improve your photography skills, learn about the Refuge and wildlife, and find out where different animals like to hang out throughout the Refuge. Walk leader, Ken Pitts, offers techniques on taking incredible photos from macro to action shots. Ken taught high school science for over 30 years before moving to Portland and changed his career slightly to working with Oregon Metro. As a Secondary Outreach Specialist he leads in classroom lessons on sustainability related topics like climate change, consumption, and recycling. He has been birding at Steigerwald for the past 5 years and has seen and photographed 154 of the 200 species of birds seen on the Refuge. Some of his photos can be seen at www.flickr.com/gp/100959034@N04/Kn74L2
