Amelia Islander

Wildlife Photography Program

Jul 18, 2016 06:35AM
Ever dreamed of getting the perfect shot of a great blue heron in flight of a bumble bee nestled on a flower? Join a photographer and nature enthusiast at Fort George Island Cultural State Park for a leisurely stroll and learn techniques to help capture the beauty of the maritime forest and salt marsh on film. Bring your own camera, supplies, sturdy shoes, bug spray, sunscreen and water. The program is free and open to the public.

Native Americans feasted here, colonists built a fort, and the Smart Set of the 1920s came for vacations. A site of human occupation for over 5,000 years, Fort George Island was named for a 1736 fort built to defend the southern flank of Georgia when it was a colony.

The Wildlife Photography program will be held at 10 a.m. on July 30 in the Ribault Club. Fort George Island is located at 11241 Fort George Road, Jacksonville.
