Saturday, June 26, 1:00 – 4:00 pm – Photographing for the Online Flora

The New England Wild Flower Society is seeking volunteers to contribute photographs of New England plant species for its forthcoming NSF-funded “Online Flora of New England”.  For each of several thousand plant species of our region,  photos are needed of habit, leaf, flower and fruit, as well as images of bark and buds for woody species.  This fun workshop, taking place Saturday, June 26 from 1 – 4 at Garden in the Woods,  will prepare you to take aesthetically-appealing “diagnostic photographs,” that you may wish to contribute to the forthcoming Online Flora.  You will learn some of the tips and tricks of successful plant photography from an accomplished botanical photographer. Bring your digital or film camera and a tripod for the outdoors practicum, which will follow the indoor slide presentation.  Arieh Tal leads the workshop, which will cost $22 for NEWFS members and $26 for nonmembers.  For more information, log on to
