Next meeting, April 12th, is a program "Tips on Successful Wildlife Photography" by Gary Melnysyn
"After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on - have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear - what remains? Nature remains". Walt Whitman
Gary is an avid outdoor enthusiast and has been interested in wildlife from a very young age. As a certified Master Naturalist and Master Wildlife Conservationist he has led and narrated eco tours as well as taught adults and children alike about the coastal ecosystem of Florida and the wildlife of New England’s woods. In his travels throughout North and Central America he has concentrated on digitally documenting a variety of wildlife species. A self-taught photographer, Gary’s travels have taken him from the far reaches of Alaska, across the Canadian tundra, through the wilderness of Montana and Wyoming, southward to the shores of the Sea of Cortez, through the Great Divide and deep woods of Maine. His passion for photography combined with his wildlife background results in stunning wildlife images. Gary is affiliated with a variety of professional organizations and has received various awards. He was most recently an Honoree in the George W. Glennie Nature Exhibition.
