FREE kids photography class Savannah

FREE Natural Resource Discovery Day and a FREE Photography Workshop are planned for Sat. March 8, 2014 @ the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.

Bring the whole family for a free, educational, fun-filled day at the Savannah NWR Visitor Center. Start with a kids photography workshop from 8:30-10 AM, then stick around for their annual free Natural Resource Discovery Day event.

FREE Natural Resource Discover Day

Come join the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for some free, family fun at Savannah National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) Visitor Center on Saturday, March 8, 2014 from 10am-4pm. Partnering with the Savannah Chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation (NWTF), Georgia Southern University, Friends of the Savannah Coastal Refuges, University of Georgia -Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and Marine Science Center, this year’s event will be loaded with fun, wildlife-related educational activities for all ages.

Have you ever wondered what a biologist, a wildland firefighter, an archaeologist, a forester or a refuge manager does on a national wildlife refuge? Well, this is your chance to learn! See how birds are banded (even band yourself!); learn about wildland fire with hands-on activities involving real fire equipment; try your luck at target shooting with a BB gun or bow, while learning about the refuge hunt program; gain a better understanding of the Fish and Wildlife Service’s role in protecting endangered species; learn why water management matters to wildlife on Savannah NWR, get close up with a variety of reptiles and much more. A special presentation on wilderness will be offered at 11am and 1pm.

FREE Kids Photography Class

In addition to Discovery Day activities, the Refuge will be conducting a photography workshop for children ages 16 and under. The workshop is intended to help young photographers learn more about photography using the natural environment of the refuge. The class will be held from 8:30-10am so participants will still be able to enjoy the Discovery Day activities. The class is free; however, reservations are required due to limited seating.

All activities will be at the Savannah NWR Visitor Center located at 694 Beech Hill Lane Hardeeville, SC (off U.S. 17, approximately 7 miles north of Savannah, GA and 7 miles south of Hardeeville, SC). For more information on this rain or shine event, call 843-784-2468 (for reservations on the photography workshop ask for Chris Cooley when you call).
