Peace Valley offers 14 miles of nature trails in the woods and meadows at the eastern end of Lake Galena. The walking options vary from groomed foot paths near the Nature Center Solar Building to remote hiking trails in the mature woods. The foot paths are generally mowed or graveled and provided with bridges or stone steps at creek crossings. More than 250 species of birds have been sighted here. The bird blind near the Solar Building is frequented by cardinals, woodpeckers, finches, titmice, sparrows, and many other colorful species.

Lehigh Valley Sportsfest
Around Lehigh Valley
July 18-21, 2013
The purpose of LVSF is to promote sports in the Lehigh Valley by offering local athletes the opportunity to compete in the sport of their choice with athletes throughout the region. Proceeds benefit inner-city high schools in the Lehigh Valley. LVSF is held over a period of four days throughout the City of Allentown and over fields and other venues within the Lehigh Valley.
We do not have an official meeting for the LVSF. There are many sports events that you can attend to practice your sports photography. Go to their website to find an event. If you find an event that you like and would like someone to go with you, write a post either on here or on FB. There are always other photographers who might like to join in the fun.
Notice to current and potential club members: There will be no regular club meetings until September and no Foto Feedback until October. There will still be group photo shoots and we will be having our club picnic in September.
There will be no club meeting or Foto Feedback in July. There will be a few opportunities to take some pictures.
