Eastside Camera Club - Upcoming Events


What:Group Shoot at Charles Ilsley Park
When:Saturday, July 11, 2020, at 9:00 AM
Details:Charles Ilsley Park is across the street from 1500 Predmore Road (31 Mile Rd) on the north side of Predmore road, between Rochester and Dequindre. This outstanding nature park will be in full bloom, with a huge first field of Black-Eyed Susans, butterflies and other bugs, and an eastern field with Beebalm flowers and lots of dragonflies and bees. Bring extension tubes or macro lens if you have them, or if not, there are plenty of overview and flower shots to be had as well. Here are some photos I've taken here during 2019. Directions from the south with the least dirt road travel: take Rochester Road 7 miles north from University Ave (center of downtown Rochester), turn right (east) onto the dirt Predmore Road, in 1 mile you'll pass Parkway Trail on the left side, now watch for the large mailbox on the left in 0.3 miles past Parkway Trail, with the 1500 address on the mailbox, and turn in there. There is a quite small wooden sign at the turn-in with the name "Charles Ilsley Park". GPS Coordinates for the entrance are 42.785352, -83.108802, or 42°47'07.3"N 83°06'31.7"W. Call Jeff or Glen if you get lost. If coming from Mike & Nat's, take 32 Mile Rd west, turn south on Dequindre, then west on Predmore, 0.6 miles to the entrance (on the right). After visiting Charles Ilsley Park, we'll drive as a caravan, 3 miles west to Lost Lake Nature Park, where Dragonflies and Lily Pads are common, perhaps some mushrooms.
