Spend the morning getting beautiful shots of Naples Botanical Garden’s waterlilies up close and personal with a one-of-a kind experience getting IN the water! This is a very limited class because the Garden will provide waders for the ability to get IN the water and not get wet. At registration, participants will need to give their shoe size so the appropriate waders will be available at check-in. Please wear appropriate clothing and protection for the sun and bring a change of clothes just in case.

- 8-10am, FGCU Kapnick Center Buehler Auditorium at Naples Botanical Garden
- $35 Members / $40 Non-Members
- Limited to 5 participants – need to have shoe size at registration!
