Nature photography featured at Nov. 10 Prairie Preservation Society event
The Prairie Preservation Society’s fall program has been moved up from Nov. 17 to Nov. 10.
A feast for the eyes will be presented at the Prairie Preservation Society of Ogle County’s annual meeting and program at the Byron Forest Preserve’s Jarrett Prairie Center at 7 p.m., Nov. 10.
Nature photographer Gary Gullet will present a slide show of wildlife photographs he has taken, from bald eagles to several of our rare grassland birds. He will also show photographs from his travels to Africa and a recent trip to Alaska.
Gullet is a professional photographer from Byron, Ill., and the president and COO of Photo Safari Network, a company that provides photo safaris on every continent. The safaris combine photography, adventure and education. Visit photosafarinetwork.com.
Light refreshments will be served following the program, which is free and open to the public. However, donations to retire the debt on Sand Ridge Prairie are accepted.
