Join the Friends of Hagerman NWR Nature Photography Club for a field trip. Join us for a photo shoot of Lotus flower stalks at Meadow Pond at Hagerman NWR. The Lotus flower stalks form interesting and abstract shapes in winter.

This excursion is subject to weather conditions. Cancellation will be posted here on the FOH NWR Photo Club Website Event Page and Friends of Hagerman NWR Nature Photography Group on Facebook.

This event is limited to FOHNWR Nature Photography Club members only.

-- Registration is not required.

10:00 am. Meet in the Visitor Center parking lot. Please park in the overflow parking lot. We will depart parking lot at 10 am and drive vehicles in caravan style to Meadow Pond Trail. Please ride together in vehicles for the caravan so that there are only 10 vehicles. We will have a van for those that want a ride to Meadow Pond.

-- No accommodations will be made for those who arrive late.

-- When we arrive at Meadow Pond Trail, we will unlock the trailhead gate to allow vehicles through and it will be locked when last vehicle in the caravan enters. We will drive on the trail to Meadow Pond. Meadow Pond is about 2.5 miles from the start of Meadow Pond Trail.

-- We will spend time photographing the Lotus flowers in Meadow Pond for about 1 hour. When finished, all vehicles must leave the trail at the same time and no vehicle can stay behind. Vehicles cannot leave early, as the trailhead gate will be locked.

There are no facilities (restrooms) on Meadow Pond Trail.

What to wear/bring: Hiking shoes, insect repellent, water, camera and photography equipment.
