Nature Photography Field Trip

Thursday, September 1

Black Swamp Conservancy Homestead Prairie

Calling all nature photographers - come photograph our native wildflower prairie in full bloom.

This Nature Photography Field Trip takes place on Thursday, September 1st beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Black Swamp Conservancy Homestead Prairie in rural Pemberville.

The restoration of this 25-acre prairie began in 2005 with the planting of native grass and wildflower mixes and the creation of ephemeral ponds. Today, the prairie has sprung to life with Big Bluestem, Indian Grass, Tall Boneset, Prairie Dock, Butterfly Weed, Monkeyflower, White Indigo and more. A one-mile mowed trail winds through the property allowing for easy navigation and photographing.

The Conservancy’s Nature Photography Field Trips are free and open to all current Black Swamp Conservancy members. For more details about this field trip and directions to the property, please RSVP to the Conservancy at 419-833-1025 or by email here.
