Join Great Plains Nature Center Naturalists in photography-centered hikes. Learn more about nature and photography and participate in group photo-critiques, field trips across Wichita and Kansas, member-only gallery exhibitions, and more in an encouraging, positive environment. No registration is required for meetings unless otherwise noted (ex: field trips with a bus).

Don't have a fancy camera? No problem! Bring whatever you have, be it ten years old or a cellphone. Soon we will have cameras available for checkout as well.
