FH&A x FWA: Bison Safari

Join Joseph Visser (photographer and curator of From Here and Away) along with Adam Kelly (adamkellyphotography.com), for an exclusive opportunity to go beyond the gates, deep into our bison prairie for your first up-close encounter with a herd of grunting, munching bison. Bring your camera and sense of adventure for this one-of-a-kind photography experience.

This workshop, like all our programming, is open to anyone, super friendly, community based, and focused on encouraging people to tap into their creative impulses and experience something fun and interesting. 

Get up close and personal with these icons of the prairies – don't miss this rare opportunity to photograph and discover more about these amazing animals. The safari bus is small and space will be extremely limited. Please visit the link below to reserve your spot!
