The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will host a free outdoor photography program on March 24, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.  The program is being coordinated by the Commission’s Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education.  

The informative 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.” 

Space is limited for these free programs. Call 828-877-4423 to pre-register or sign up online

Located south of Asheville off U.S. 276 and next to the Davidson River, the Pisgah Center offers free admission, daily showings of an award-winning documentary, and online schedules of upcoming events and conservation activities.
