May 4- Wildflower Walk/photo contest at Camp Wildcat

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — The Appalachian Photographic Society, along with the Camp Wildcat Preservation Foundation, is hosting a wildflower walk Saturday, May 4.

The free trip includes wildflower identification with photographic opportunities at the Camp Wildcat Battlefield on top of Wildcat Mountain. The battlefield contains many wildflowers as well as many other natural features.

As wildflowers are identified, members of the Appalachian Photographic Society will be available to advise visitors on how to best photograph the flowers.

A cash prize will be given for first, second and third place as determined by a panel of three judges.

The program will begin at 10 a.m. and end in early afternoon. Refreshments will be available at no cost. Connie Taylor, a wildflower expert and professional photographer, as well as a plant folklore columnist for The Sentinel-Echo, will be the tour guide.

“Bring your camera and come to the Camp Wildcat Battlefield on top of Wildcat Mountain and join in the fun,” Foundation President John Strojan said. “You will learn some new photographic techniques and possibly win a cash prize.”

The first prize winner in last year’s Wildflower Walk was Heather Partin of Barbourville for her photo.

The battlefield is located about 10 miles north of London on U.S. 25, turn onto Hazel Patch Road or off  I-75 at exit 49, follow the signs.

For more information, call Maxine Cass at 864-9776.
