Phabulous Photo Weekend


Phabulous Photo Weekend, scheduled to occur October 18-20, is a multi-day event chock-full of free, fun nature and wildlife photography-related activities conducted at the visitor center and on the refuge.  The event is held every October in celebration of National Wildlife Refuge Week.

Sponsored by the refuge, the Photographic Society of Parker River NWR, Hunt's Photo, and the Friends of Parker River NWR, the 2013 Phabulous Photo Weekend will offer a great mix of things to see and do including narrated presentations by professional photographers, guided photo shoots on the refuge, opportunities to learn about the latest gear from leading photography equipment manufacturers, and view beautiful photographic prints that have been entered into the refuge's 2013 photo contest.  And it's all FREE!


The event starts Friday evening in the visitor auditorium with a narrated slide program about photographing wildlife in Costa Rica.  The event concludes on Sunday afternoon with the announcement of this year's photo contest winners.  The complete event program schedule can be downloaded below.
