October Friends First Friday Exotica in your Own Garden

October 6, 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Exotica in your own Garden

$12 Non Members, $10 Members

Chuck Murphy, Athens-based award-winning nature photographer, will share his experiences in finding and photographing the unique and beautiful native flora and fauna in his own garden, yard, and ponds. It takes a camera to appreciate many of these species.  There is always more there than meets the eye. This presentation ties into the “Meet Your Neighbours” exhibit that Chuck and his colleague Jena Johnson have on display in the Visitor Center gallery from August 27th through October 8th.  You don’t have to travel to Anatolia or Zanzibar to see fascinating plants and animals – they’re in your own garden if you just look closely enough! Includes a full breakfast.

Make reservations by Sep. 29
