Schedule of Events

We will proceed into the Gardens at the 11:00 AM opening and proceed through the many varied locations on our own. No formal presentation is planned.


The Gardens present many varied shooting opportunities. Lens choices run the gamut from wide to telescope, Macro is also a possibility but, tripods are not allowed. Polarizers can be useful here along with flash for certain situations.

Other Tips

We will monitor weather forecasts leading up to the date with the possibility of a rain date if needed.

We are in the open beside the river so the need for bug spray is not as acute as for recent outings but, this is Florida so be prepared.
