We are teaming up with Point Reyes Safaris and the Conservation Kids to provide participants youth interested in photography and the outdoors an amazing opportunity! Participants will be provided a professional camera and will be trained by local professional photographers for a fun day in Point Reyes National Seashore. Those photos will then be made available for purchase by people across the country on the Conservation Kids website. The proceeds then go to environmental organizations supporting conservation.
