Have you ever wondered how snakes eat, what’s for breakfast when you’re a turtle, or how a salamander finds a meal? This is the program for you. Watch our exhibit animals enjoy a delicious meal while a naturalist explains their feeding behaviors and taste preferences. Experience the predator-prey relationship in front of your eyes!

Do you enjoy nature photography? Photographers of all levels and ages welcome to attend this free program!
Discuss photos, new equipment, gear, photography issues, and possible upcoming photography opportunities.
Each meeting has an "assignment," or topic of focus given for the next month’s meeting. Participants are welcome to bring a thumb drive with 5-10 pictures they have taken, usually based on the assignment but not required to be. The pictures are projected on a large screen and discussed. Monthly assignments vary, topic examples include: depth of field, photography issues, "frozen," "spring," or "water". There is a bias toward nature in our subjects, but other picture subjects are welcome as well.
Meeting generally take place on the forth Thursday of each month, at 7 p.m. at Springbrook Nature Center.
