Lopez Island Photographic Society 7pm LIPS is a gathering of enthusiastic amateur photographers. Our mutual goal is to help each other learn to be better photographers. Our membership spans the entire gamut of experience and expertise from beginner to advanced, but we are all learners. Photography is, like many things in life, not subject to perfection, but it is improvable. And even the least experienced among us has things to offer.

The heart of our meetings is a "show and tell." Here we share and talk about the photos we've taken in response to the "theme of the month." There is also usually a lesson about some aspect of photography or a learning exercise/hands on experience. We have had scheduled field trips as well as impromptu shoots.
If you have an interest in or a passion for photography, please come help us help each other. Membership is free and you just might take home knowledge and new ideas that will help provide you with a lifetime of photographic enjoyment.   Location: Lopez Island Library Contact: Gary Zerbst Phone: 360-468-4544

National Native American Heritage Month: Sharing the Skies Through Navajo Eyes 7pm-8pm
The Lopez Island Library and the San Juan Islands National Monument are proud to present a beautiful and unique evening celebrating the night sky with Dr. Nancy Maryboy of the Indigenous Peoples Institute. The event is held in recognition of National Native American Heritage Month. Indigenous astronomy is significantly different from western astronomy. In her presentation Dr. Maryboy will discuss the foundations of Navajo astronomy and explore the patterns and cycles of Navajo constellations, sun and moon with images from the Hubble Telescope as backdrop. Dr. Maryboy is Navajo and Cherokee and has a PhD in Indigenous Science with a focus on native astronomy. Photographer Chris Teren will also share his breathtaking images of the Northern Lights.  Following the program, weather permitting, the event will feature star gazing with Dr. Maryboy on the lawn of LCCA.  We encourage you to bring your own telescope or share with others.  Hot drinks will be provided. Sharing the Skies Through Navajo Eyes is funded by NASA and UC Berkeley, Space Sciences Laboratory, Multiverse, the Indigenous Education Institute, the Lopez Island Library and the San Juan Islands National Monument.  Location: Lopez Center for Community and the Arts (LCCA)  Contact: Jen KrajackPhone: 360-468-2265
