During this 2 hour tour, Phil will drive you through the Wildlife Refuge, pointing out possible subjects and shots. Phil will also show you the resources at the visitor's center and why it's important to use them.
This will be a safari-style tour with very little walking as we shoot from the comfort of a vehicle. :-)
