Beginners’ Nature Photography Hike to the Confluence

Photographs by: Cathysue Smick, Tina Cheung, Keith Woodyard, Pat Behle, August Wise, and Anna Cooke

Nature photography is a great way to learn more about and connect with the nature around you. You don’t need a fancy camera to get started. You may even be shocked by the photographs you can take with just your smartphone!

These photographs were taken in January 2022 by participants of the Beginners’ Nature Photography Hike to the Confluence at Columbia Bottom Conservation Area. We hiked to the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, stopping often along the way to snap photographs that inspired us. Even though it was a cold winter’s day, participants were still able to capture the beauty of Columbia Bottom.

If you’re interested in a nature photography program or any of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s other free programs, head to www.mdc.mo.gov/events to see upcoming programs.

Did you know the Mississippi River hosts one of North America’s largest concentrations of bald eagles? They are drawn to areas of open water in search of fish, their preferred food. The colder the weather, the better the chances of seeing them fish, ride ice floes, soar overhead and roost in nearby trees! Eagle lovers of all ages are invited to the Audubon Center at Riverlands in West Alton on February 11, 2023. Visitors are welcome to view eagles through spotting scopes staffed by trained volunteers, as well as attend a live Bald Eagle program presented by the World Bird Sanctuary.

Due to limited space, registration is required for this event. Please individually register every person planning to attend.
