Discover new ways to take beautiful nature photographs at the Sunday, Oct. 11 Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market with photographer Marissa Jacobs.
Jacobs will lead participants on a photographic walking tour of the historic Dvoor Farm, which offers 40 acres of wetlands, a pollinator meadow, an old-growth forest and the Walnut Brook.
The program begins at 10 a.m. and is free; space is limited so reservations are a must by emailing or calling 908-237-4582.
The program is sponsored by a grant from The Tyler Foundation.
Jacobs is an award-winning nature photographer and National Geographic Certified Educator and Mentor who holds a B.S. in Wildlife Conservation and Management with a focus in art. She blends the arts and environmental sciences to build visual connections between people and the environment to create a deeper understanding and desire to love and protect the natural world.
Jacobs has run several photo walks in the past, focusing on the natural beauty of the area and encouraging participants observe nature through their camera lens in new and exciting ways.
During the guided photo walk, participants can ask questions about both nature and photography topics and take their time capturing the perfect shot of any scenic landscape, animal, or plant.
