VAN BUREN, MO:  Join a Park Ranger for a guided “point and shoot” photography hike on Sunday, July 16th, at 2 p.m. The hike will begin at Big Spring, and participants can expect to explore the nearby area for scenic views. Participants should plan to hike approximately ½-mile. 

They say the best camera is the one you have with you. For most of us, that means our cell phones. The Big Spring area provides a myriad of photo opportunities including beautiful scenes and wildlife. Learn helpful tips such as composition and lighting to best capture your memories.  

Participants should come prepared with comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather, including rain gear in case of light rain. In addition, hikers may wish to bring water, sunscreen and insect repellent. In the event of heavy rain or lightning, the hike will be canceled. Make sure to bring your camera phone. This event is free and will be enjoyable for all ages. For more information, call Park Ranger Cathy Runge at 573-323-4806 or e-mail us.  

Ozark National Scenic Riverways preserves the free-flowing Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, the surrounding natural resources, and the unique cultural heritage of the Ozark people. For more information visit, www.nps.gov/ozar or call 573-323-4236.
