This month's meeting will be on April 21st at 7 PM. It will be in the Zoo Ops building south of the Zoo parking lot. Bring slides and prints to share.


The  Great Plains Nature Photographers' Spring meeting was held April 12 at the Great Plains Nature Center  in Wichita, Kansas. We hope to hear all about it from the members who attended.


By popular vote, the Savanahland tour will be on Saturday, May 24th at 10:00 A.M. for the two hour tour/party. The price per person, (including children) is $10.50.

This price is the only way they will keep the chimp out for the full two hours. We can bring our lunch and eat at the pavilion. Carol Mitchell has made the reservation and will put a deposit on it. You may pay the day you go. In case of rain we can reschedule or cancel. Map and directions are on the website, or a few will be at the meeting. You can bring along a friend; we need at least 20 people.
