The December monthly meeting will be in the form of a pot luck dinner at Jeff Krueger's home. You can find details here.
Notes from the two presentations from the November meeting can be found here
Topic #15 Capturing the Spirit of Wildlife
Topic #16 Animals in Action
The next education session offered to the PCQC membership will be held on January 15th.
Jim Burkstrand will focus on Local Edits to photos.
There is no field trip scheduled for December but the trip in January will make up for that so mark your calendars.
The next PCQC Field trip will be January 24, 2020. We will travel to the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson. We will leave the Madera Clubhouse parking lot at 9:00 am.
We will have a program that will consist of a 30 min classroom presentation including some of our animal ambassadors which will allow us to get some good up close photos of some of the Zoo's smaller animals, such as an armadillo, snake, or tamandua. We then will go behind the scenes to the rhino habitat for an up close encounter there. The fee for this program is $14 per person, which includes admission to the zoo. This will provide some unique photo opportunities since most of the “animal ambassadors” only come out for special presentations.You will need to prepay to participate in this program.
Reservation and prepayment details will be available in January.
Photos from the November field trip to Tanque Verde Ranch can be seen here.
