April Field Trip
Apr 8 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

NOTE:  This month the field trip is on a Sunday

 

     

Spring at Tiger Lily Farm is such an exciting time with the birth of lambs, calves, pigs, and sheep providing us with fantastic photo opportunities.

Not into the animals?? There are many other things for you to see and photograph from inside the store, the old and new farm machinery and tools plus so much more

This is a field trip that will have something for everyone.

As a special for the photo society they are not going to charge us but ask if there are any photos you that you really like the way they turn out if you could share them with them for their website and Facebook page.  They will give you full credit for your work.  You can make a donation if you would like but it is not compulsory.

    

Lunch will be at Trees

1385 Alberni Hwy, Parksville BC V9P 2B8

(across the street from the Coop service station on the highway)
