Public invited to Naturescapes reception, awards ceremony at Activity Center

The hallways at the Activity Center are full of birds — flying, feeding and nesting — this year’s annual Naturescapes Photo Contest seems especially light and airy with birds. Across the hall, the invitation to “Take a Seat” offers many and vantage points for observing.
Both Naturescapes’ patient and bountiful photographs of the natural world and its partner exhibit by the Hill Country Photography Club (HCPC) members, “Take a Seat,” seem to be  perfect follow-ons to recent Walkers’ Gallery exhibit, “On Walking.”
