NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY ON DISPLAY AT THE JANUARY, 2015 CHAPTER MEETING

The Augusta-Aiken Audubon chapter will once again spotlight the awesome photographic talent of our members at our January Chapter meeting This year will be the fifth anniversary of our ANNUAL SHOW AND TELL PROGRAM coordinated by John Demko.

Members are encouraged to submit up to twelve nature photos in .jpg format only, that they would like to share with the rest of the members. This year we are only going to allow still photos--no video. You must be present for the meeting, as you will be the one explaining what you submitted. If you are interested, pick out the photos you want to share. The size of the photos should be anywhere from 1-5 Megs. Please place numbers from 01 to 12 in front of the name of the photos so they will be displayed in the proper order. As an example, if you have a photo named “duck.jpg” just rename it “01 duck.jpg” and so on.

Next, send these photos to John Demko so he can assemble them into an Adobe Acrobat presentation. If you use Dropbox, that would be the best way to get them to him. Share them with his e-mail address: leveljohn7@gmail.com . If you do not use Dropbox, then simply send them three at a time attached to e-mails to the same address. Please note this is a new e-mail address from the previous years.

You also need to let John know how you want your name displayed on the first slide that will be displayed to start your series of photos. He will send a confirming e-mail to you that he has received your files in good order. If you do not receive a confirming e-mail within forty-eigh t hours after sending it, he probably never received anything.

The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2014, to allow him to get everything together and test out the program on Silver Bluff's projector. If you need to leave early or will be coming late, let him know when you send me your photos, and he will try place your slides in the appropriate place in the presentation.

Food is potluck so please bring something for the pot.

BUY A DUCK STAMP

Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps, commonly known as “Duck Stamps,” are pictorial stamps produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. They are not valid for postage. Originally created in 1934 as federal licenses required for hunting migratory waterfowl, Federal Duck Stamps have a much larger purpose today.

Federal Duck Stamps are vital tools for wetland conservation. Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Understandably, the Federal Duck Stamp has been called one of the most successful conservation programs ever initiated and is a highly effective way to conserve America’s natural resources.

Besides serving as a hunting license and a conservation tool, a current Federal Duck Stamp also serves as an entrance pass for national wildlife refuges where admission is charged

Note: The price of the 2014-2015 duck Stamp is $25 regardless of what is printed on the stamp
