Jesse Jones Park Round Two

As I mentioned here I volunteer with a group of 9th grade science students on digital photography for science concepts. We frequent a local park/wildlife preserve in our endeavors at capturing life science images and I usually take images of my own right along side the kids.

Some years we also visit a local arboretum to seek out images but this year we decided to just try another side of the park and see what we could come up with, here are some of my images from that day.

No snakes this time but there are some bugs and a frog, be warned!

Mentorship

For several years now, I’ve volunteered with my sister’s 9th grade science classes. We use digital photography as a way to help solidify science concepts for them and the kids really seem to love it. They are excited about learning how to capture what they see in nature through a camera and they have been extremely successful in the district science fair as a result of our efforts. I am super proud of each batch of kids (I really am) but this year in particular, there is one student who is just a natural at photography. I look forward to great things from him in the future.

Over the weekend, the kids attended a carnivorous plant talk and then we did a photo walk through the park where the talk was held. Here are some of my images from the day.
