Seasonal Walk: Photographing Nature

This Oak Loop walk led by Don Ewers will focus on photographing nature. 

Don retired from teaching at the U. S. Army Academy of Health Sciences (now the AMEDD School) and the University of the Incarnate Word where he taught in the Art and Communication Arts department with a specialty in photography. He currently has several books in various stages of production. The one closest to publication is "The Song of the Cactus Flower; Images from a Land of Many Thorns." Don also is the author of the "While On A Walk" blog, photographs with an occasional philosophical reflection, which can be found at: http://whileonawalk.blogspot.com.

Bring your cameras! The purposes of this walk are appreciating the beauty of the natural areas along the Oak Loop Trail, observing how nature changes through the seasons, and documenting your perceptions with photography.

Please meet by 8:00 am to sign up for an 8:10 am sharp departure from the sidewalk in front of the Children's Playground in Phil Hardberger Park West (8400 NW Military---about 0.2 miles SE on Military from Alon Market, i.e. closer to Loop 410).  We will walk along the Savanna Trail to the savanna restoration area with a brief explanation there and then proceed to the Oak Loop Trail.  There will be a few stops along the trail where certain plants and points of ecological interest will be explained with ample time for participant questions. Minors only when accompanied by an adult parent/guardian. Dogs allowed if leashed and socialized.

DIFFICULTY:  Easy, definitely suitable for  families.  Flat terrain, slow-paced.  This will only be a 1.5  mile walk and last about an hour and a quarter to end back at the playground around 9:45 a.m.  The trail is a natural surface so be sure to wear sturdy shoes and, dependent on the weather, bring water, sun protection, and dress appropriate for the day and season.  Donations may be made to the PHP Conservancy to support the park, but are not required.
