New photography club captures nature

A new nature and wildlife photography club has formed at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. The new club is intended for anyone, from beginners to professionals, who has an interest in nature and photography. The Photographic Society of Parker River National Wildlife Refuge meets once each month, generally in the afternoon of the second Saturday of the month. The next meeting is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 9  at the refuge’s visitors center, 6 Plum Island Turnpike . Club activities include slide shows of members’ work, mentoring and training, photo shoots, online photo sharing, and involvement in the refuge’s photography-related programming and outreach work. Preregistration is not required to attend this free program. For more information, call Matt Poole at 978-465-5753, ext. 210.
