    Do you have a little one who enjoys being outdoors? Are you wondering what they can do during the rainy season? Bring your littlest naturalist to the Refuge to stomp in puddles and learn to appreciate the wet weather that makes Oregon so green!

    This preschool environmental education program invites children and their families to spend the morning learning about the natural wonders of the Refuge. Volunteer Naturalists will lead nature crafts, share stories, and guide hikes on Refuge trails. The Refuge supplies 'froggy' raingear for the kids, but adults should bring their own.

    The Puddle Stompers program is offered the second Wednesday and following Tuesday of each month, and each month has a new theme. This month's theme is frogs!

    This event is free & open to the public, but registration is required.

    Questions? Please contact tualatinriver@fws.gov or call (503)625-5944.

    • 19255 SW Pacific Hwy, Sherwood, OR 97140

    October 1st Our guest speaker and presenter is Mike Dimock.

     “Back in the early days the medium format film camera I used limited me to working with landscapes. Once I was unencumbered and found the flexibility of more modern equipment I found that I really was more interested in photographing wildlife than landscapes. While I love working great sunsets or waterfalls, it is lying in the mud trying to work with a small shorebird or sitting in a meadow with a Savannah Sparrow that really gets me going.” 

    Mike offered to focus his presentation on shorebirds.

    All Photo Society meetings are free and open to both members of the Friends and non-members. Monthly meetings are held at the Visitor Center at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, 19255 SW Pacific Hwy, Sherwood, OR 97140. on the first Thursday of every month at 7 PM.


    The Friends Photo Society also offers some wonderful volunteering opportunities with the Refuge. Examples of volunteer opportunities include, leading of photo walks at the Refuge, creating photo journals of major restoration projects at the Refuge, and others.

    November 5th    Our guest speaker and presenter is Zeb Andrews (https://www.zebandrews.photos/about-me)." My adventures with photography began back in 2001 with a waterfall and a Pentax K1000.  Since then it has been a near-nonstop journey.  I use my cameras to teach me how to see the world more keenly, to appreciate details and subtleties to a greater extent, to  enjoy the fine, yet passing, qualities of light and time.  I invest myself more in the process of photography than the results."
