Abstract Micrographs: Nature at Unnatural Magnifications | May 29

When it comes to nature—there’s more than meets the eye! Would you have guessed that these colorful images are from moth eggs, seaweed cells, maple leaves, mums, bumble bees, moth scales and more?


Using research quality microscopes, we'll learn how to photograph things in the realm of the ultra small. Adults are invited to join us for this fun, two-hour hands-on workshop that combines nature, science and photography!


Participants should bring a specimen (a pinch of sand, a piece of fruit, plant, fabric, etc.) that they don't mind slicing into, and an SD card to take photos home.


$45 per person

Space is limited. RSVP today!
