[ARCHIVED] O.W.L.S. Topic Features Musings of a Wildlife and Nature Photographer

Story County Conservation invites the public to the monthly O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) program at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park (56461 180th Street) northeast of Ames. Musings of a Wildlife and Nature Photographer will be presented by Craig Meyers on Tuesday, February 5, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Almost everyone who owns a camera becomes a nature photographer at some time. Nature is a magnet, drawing us to it. Sooner or later, we all want to “capture” some of it and take it home or share it with others. Join Meyer as he shares photos and stories of some of his favorite destinations and their inhabitants, from Costa Rica to Canada.

O.W.L.S. programs are designed for "boomers" or older – but anyone can attend. An optional luncheon follows the program at 12 p.m. To view a full schedule of OWLS programs, go here: Lunch is catered for a $7 fee, and registration is required by 3:30 p.m., Friday, February 1. The planned lunch menu for February is pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions, roll and Oreo fluff.
