Photographing the Nature Center
The Demarest Nature Center provides a gorgeous natural backdrop for photography, and every year photographers of all ages can be found wandering the trails and looking for that perfect shot. Each bend in the path opens up a new vista, and if you're quick on the draw, you might capture a bird or a family of ducklings, a snake or even a deer.
Photographs taken in the Nature Center may qualify for the annual Photo Contest. Every year in the spring, submissions are accepted to be judged by the Center's own panel of judges. Winners are revealed at the Breakfast in the Woods in June.
