Saturday, May 13, 2023, was a beautiful day in the Montgomery Botanical Gardens to present a class in Nature Photography with instructors Billy Birchfield and David Robertson in the Wisdom Wood Outdoor Classroom. The enthusiastic attendees received excellent guidance from these experienced photographers on how to take better photographs of the natural world. Examples of photographs were shared to illustrate certain issues for taking photographs of items in their natural surroundings. After the instructions were completed, the attendees were offered opportunities to take photos of the numerous flowers, trees, birds, and natural venues in MBG. Comments from attendees were positive and appreciative.
This was the final class in the activities hosted by the Montgomery Botanical Gardens Board of Directors to recognize National Public Gardens Week, May 6 – 13, 2023. NPG was established by the American Public Gardens Association to celebrate and emphasize the value of public gardens for communities across the nation. Public gardens contribute greatly to the quality of life in any community and Montgomery Botanical Gardens is happy to be a part of the vibrant River Region and to welcome everyone to visit the gardens.
Classes are held in the gardens throughout the year. The 2023 MBG Calendar of Classes can be viewed on the MBG website here.
