Weekend nature programs at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge will resume this weekend. The refuge is used as a focal point for programs that study wildlife, botany, history and photography through the summer. The first of the bunch are:
8-10 a.m. Saturday: “Nature from Every Angle: An Introduction to Point of View Photography.” I’ina van Lawick will lead a beginning photo composition class. She’ll introduce participants to a style of photography that uses interesting perspectives and camera angles to give the viewer a unique experience. Bring your camera, extra batteries and a photo you would like to have critiqued for improvement.
1-3 p.m. Sunday: “Flourishing Flowers.” Join Sally Vogel on a nature walk through the refuge and learn about flowers at the refuge.
Programs begin at the refuge visitor center. They are free, but the refuge entrance fee is $3 per four adults.
