Young Explorers Hit the New River Trail

The Young Explorers Club set out on a walk Saturday, April 23rd in search of spring wildflowers and birds.  We walked the New River Trail from the low water bridge access in Fries towards Fries Junction.

Prior to the hike, Aaron Floyd gave us all a brief lesson on how a camera works and how to capture the best pictures by using aperture, shutter speed and ISO. The Club set out with cameras and binoculars with wildflowers, birds, insects and each other as the subject matter.

The beauty was abundant as noted by the "budding" photographers pictures! We were also accompanied by Rick Taylor who was very helpful in wildflower identification.
