Upcoming Events

Join us on a photo nature walk.

October 4th, 2020

from 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Location: Nature Walk Trail, Tom Mays Unit, Franklin Mountains State Park, El Paso, TX

Join expert nature photographers Benny Pol, Liz DeMoultrie and Paul Hyder for a photo walk at the Nature Walk Trail in Tom Mays Park (Map to Tom Mays). Be a part of this co-sponsored GREEN HOPE PROJECT event and explore the beauty of the Franklin Mountains, discuss nature photography techniques, camera equipment and get helpful hints on how to shoot quality photos. 

 

This event will give you an introduction to capturing the beauty of our desert landscape. The walk will be at a slow pace on an unpaved and rocky terrain. We will make several stops along the ¾ mile loop trail to highlight the flora and fauna we encounter. Please bring a mask, water, sun protection and your camera or smartphone. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear, as well. Hand sanitizer will be available.

 

We will follow COVID-19 rules and restrictions applicable on the event date. Reservations for Franklin Mountains State Park are required and should be made in advance online.

There will be a friendly contest for the best photo taken! All photos taken will be displayed on the Green Hope Project accounts and the top submission will receive a gift card prize!
