Learn how to minimize your impact while inspiring others to protect and preserve our beloved landscapes and natural resources.
Join photographer and Trail Conference Stewardship Communications Coordinator, Krysti Sabins, and Leave No Trace Master Educator and Trail Conference Trail Steward Program Coordinator, Myra Romano, as they take you on a guided tour of Minnewaska State Park Preserve.
On this moderate, approximately 3-mile walk through diverse habitats, your guides will demonstrate various photography techniques while highlighting Leave No Trace Principles. Discover how to document and protect our natural areas so we can return to these places again, and again, without seeing them damaged.
This workshop is designed for anyone interested in photography – no previous training is required. We will be focusing on general techniques and skills – a smartphone camera will be sufficient, but you are welcome to bring a DSLR/digital camera that you are already familiar with using.
Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear close-toed shoes, bring plenty of water and snacks as well as any other creature comforts. We look forward to exploring with you!
Pre-registration is required; each tour is limited to 15 people.
Please note: There is a $10 per vehicle entrance fee at Minnewaska State Park Preserve. (Those with a valid Empire Pass will not need to pay this fee).
