What

Invasive plants are non-native species that threaten Ohio's natural areas by altering the native biodiversity found in our forests, grasslands, prairies and wetlands.  This workshop will provide some suggested alternatives of native and ornamental plants that are available in many nurseries and garden centers.  Live specimens and herbarium plants will be on display for hands-on learning and identification.

What

Try a variety of ways to create close-up images of spring flowers, plant shoots and bonsai trees from our collection.  Learn focus stacking -- a technique that combines multiple images taken at different focus distances, increasing the resulting image's depth-of-field.  Several natural and easy-to-transport backgrounds will be provided.  Bring your DSLR camera, close-up lens and tripod.  This program will take place outdoors, weather permitting.  In the event of rain, camera raincoats and tripod umbrellas will be available, as well as opportunities to photograph indoors.
