Participants will arrive before the last hour of light and stay until after dark practicing night light photography at the historic western village and shooting the stars when dark.
July 24 to 26: An extensive three-day workshop will explore landscape photography in Central Oregon. Instruction will occur at three different locations with classroom image development instruction.

Oregon Desert Trail
Learn about Oregon's newest and perhaps most challenging trail proposal, The Oregon Desert Trail, at REI in Bend's Old Mill District, March 9 at 6 p.m. The free discussion will be led by the Oregon Natural Desert Association's Renee Patrick who has completed long distance hikes on the Pacific Crest, the Appalachian, and Continental Divide Trails.
Much of the 750-mile desert trail is in conceptual stages. It traces a route from the Badlands Wilderness just east of Bend south to the Fremont National Forest, southeast to Hart Mountain, east to the Steens, and finally terminates after passing through the Owyhee Canyonlands. ONDA hopes the trail will eventually win designation as an extension of the National Recreation Trail system.
