Sierra Photo NYC Outings

Contact Charles Dexter to reserve: 212-315-1963 (call until 10:30 pm). Volunteers with cars are needed for out-of-town outings.

On Thursday, May 16, and on Saturday, May 18, Sierra Photo NYC will lead an outing to visit both the Raptor Trust, in Milington, NJ, and the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Morris County, NJ.  

The Raptor Trust will provide an opportunity to photograph rescued hawks and owls being rehabilitated for release. At The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, boardwalks allow access to the swamps, marshes, wild grasses, birds and ponds in late-day light.  These two locations will be visited on both outings.  

The groups will leave NYC at 1:00 pm and shoot until late in the day.  A restaurant dinner will follow, returning to NYC at 10:00–10:30 pm. 

Plan for a full day with changeable weather.  Bring hiking boots, rain jackets, sunblock, bug spray, lunch, and water.
