Nature Photography Day - June 15

Northern green frog in the impoundment pond at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at TinicumNext month, we'll be celebrating National Nature Photography Day.

It's occurs on June 15 every year. The original date and day was first created by the North American Nature Photography Association in 2006. It was created to “promote the enjoyment of nature photography and to explain how images are used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide.”

Celebrating National Nature Photography Day couldn't be easier. Pull out your camera or your smartphone, head outdoors and start making photos. Considering visiting a national, state or local park. Go to a national, state or local wildlife refuge. Enjoy at least one of these wonderful venues on this special day.
In the Greater Philadelphia Region? Join me on the 15th!
If you're in the Great Philadelphia Region, I've got another way for you to enjoy National Nature Photography Day. Join me at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge for my National Nature Photography Day Photowalk. The photowalk is free and open to the public. The walk will start at the Refuge's visitor center at 8am. The walk is over level terrain, but wear comfortable shoes. We'll finish by noon.

We'll be photographing summer birds and other animals, plus have landscape opportunities. Remember that it's not a zoo, so viewing wildlife can be unpredictable at times. There will be known areas where birds typically hang-out, but I'll hope for some surprises too. We'll walk along the Impoundment Pond loop, go to the edge of the freshwater tidal marsh in the Refuge and through other habitats there.

The Heinz Refuge is America's first urban refuge and is located near Philadelphia International Airport.
