BRADEN RIVER ROOKERY PADDLE/photography workshop

We will launch from the Braden River Boat launch for a  2 hour- 3 mile sunrise photo session with the birds of the Braden River Rookery. Come to learn/share tips and techniques for great bird photography.

Roseatte Spoonbills, Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Cormorrants and others are usually here yearround. We will be close enough for some great shots but will need to keep our distance to avoid stressing the birds.

While not for first time kayakers, beginning kayakers are welcome.
