June 23, 6:15 pm – Join Rosalind Philips and Pam Hoaglund for an evening photo walk at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. We will meet in the parking lot just beyond the visitor center at 6:15 p.m. and plan to begin our walk at 6:30 p.m. The tide will be going out with low tide at 9:24 p.m. The beaver are frequently active in the fresh water pond in the evening and deer and other wildlife are more active during the evening hours. Bring your telephoto lens and tripod. Hopefully, we can also capture some shore birds as the tide goes out. Sunset is at 9:10 p.m. so we will have to be out of the refuge around 9 p.m. before the gate closes.

Also, keep an eye on our Facebook page for spur-of-the-moment photowalks organized by fellow members throughout the summer.

The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.

Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests.  You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests.  You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.

We have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels.  Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events.  Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.


You are invited to attend any and all of our meetings.  See the calendar for details.

The Olympia Camera Club is a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
