Nature Photography Workshop

Sat, May 10, 9AM – 1PM Nature Learning Center Stop shooting in auto mode!

The morning session will be followed by a field session exploring in and around the Rockwell Sanctuary, learning how to capture the best images possible. No camera is too big or too small, so no matter your camera, join us for a day of shooting and sharing photographs.

EcoForum: Conway Recycles

EcoForum: Conway Recycles Public Work Director, Paul DegliAngeli Thur, April 10, Noon-1PM Nature Learning Center When you are unloading an armful of trash, it can be a challenge to remember just what can be recycled and what cannot. Most plastic products can be recycled with the right symbol, but can plastic shopping bags? Aluminum cans should be recycled but should aluminum foil? Recycling in Conway is mandatory, so if you use the Conway Transfer Station, make sure you know the regulations of Conway’s Recycling program. Paul DegliAngeli, Public Works Director, will discuss Conway’s ongoing efforts to recycle and extend the life of our landfills. Join Tin Mountain for the monthly EcoForum Series on Thursday, April 10th, at noon to learn more.
