Our Find & Capture program addresses a creative and unified approach to artistic expression and outdoor recreation. It encourages teamwork, problem-solving, and creative application of photography in a natural setting and includes an orienteering lesson, kayaking tutorial, and photo scavenger hunt along Barton Creek, including underwater photography.

Participants meet at the Barton Creek Greenbelt and learn to orient themselves with a map and compass. They use their orienteering skills to locate a set of digital underwater cameras. After a photography lesson, participants locate air kayaks with their maps and compasses, receive a kayaking tutorial, then proceed to locate & photograph items and points of interest found on a laminated scavenger-hunt list, based on the lesson
from Project Wild – “Microtrek Treasure Hunt.”
This half-day trip will last from 9:00am until 12:30pm. IMG_2928
