Gabriola Photography Club members – and other photographers considering joining our club – are invited to take part in our first field trip of 2023.
When & where:
We’re heading to Buttertubs Marsh Park in Nanaimo, on Thursday afternoon, April 13.
Buttertubs is a lovely, accessible bird and wildlife sanctuary, encircled by an easy 2-km trail. The field trip will provide an opportunity to connect face-to-face with other club photographers, and the destination is perfect for honing your skills in nature photography: nesting birds, waterfowl, and the marsh habitat.
Timing & travel:
We plan to catch the 1:30pm ferry off Gabriola. For seniors, it’s a ride-free day on the ferry, and if desired we can arrange car pooling to reduce the number of vehicles going over. After two hours at the Park (approximately 2 to 4 pm), we’ll return to the Nanaimo ferry terminal to catch the 4:35pm or 5:05pm ferry back to Gabriola.
To join in:
Please contact Sally Bullas.
What to bring:
You might want to bring along a folding stool or light-weight lawn chair, water bottle, thermos of tea/coffee, and perhaps a snack. In addition, we recommend that you wear layered clothing, walking shoes or boots, and a light all-weather jacket in case of rain.
Come one, come all, it will be a grand excursion!
