From September 29-October 2, Blyth Lawrence Park’s Grade 11 and 12 Photography class were given an incredible opportunity to visit the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station, located in the heart of Ontario’s famous Algonquin Provincial Park. During their four-day stay on 33,000 acres of protected wilderness, students learned the skills involved in identifying, tracking and photographing local wildlife, as well as meeting field researchers, land-surveyors in training, and a videographer for CBC and BBC wildlife documentaries. The students worked on their own photographic skills to capture shots of moose and beavers, star trails, low light exposures, and wilderness portraits of each other, in addition to becoming more knowledgeable about sustainability and risk-assessment while adventuring in the outdoors.
