Hosted by Saw Mill River Audubon and led by SMRA Board Member Larry Trachtenberg. Now an annual Saw Mill River Audubon tradition! Start off the year and your 2019 bird list with an invigorating walk along the Hudson River shoreline at Rockwood Hall. Dress warmly since it is often cooler by the river. Bring binoculars if you have them. SMRA will also have spotting scopes to share. Meet up location: Parking lot near Rockwood. Beginners encouraged!

Sunday Morning Winter Photo Walk

Rockefeller State Park Preserve

Pre-registration required at or by calling Julia at 914-631-1470 x107. Any camera is fine, even a cell phone. Meet at the Park's main Office. Heidi is rejoining us as our special guide for a Winter Photo Walk, contributing her unique talents to lead another once-per-season tradition at the Preserve. Heidi will not burden the walk with an instructional class; rather, she will help point out photographic opportunities and approaches during an energetic 2-hour jaunt through our carriage trails in search of both broad vistas and close-ups. Each season brings different photographic opportunities, and winter brings special light and simplicity.

This past year, Heidi has focused on projects photographing "fog" and "ice," and these large collections both have been exhibited in public gallery spaces. During the Fall, several of her images were on view at the New York Hall of Science's exhibit on forest birds and at the Rockefeller Preserve Gallery exhibit on carnivores. Locally, her photographs are routinely featured in Rockefeller State Park Preserve web and print publications. Heidi is also co-president of the 80+ member Color Camera Club of Westchester.
