Front Page News

In an effort to keep our members updated on current events at MAPS, look here for the latest Front Page News.

  • Image Review (Critique) November 12. It is time for another image review (formerly known as critique).  On Monday November 12, photographers Lou and Todd Nettelhorst will review your images and and provide their comments on what you might have done differently and how your images might have been improved.

Please note that this image review session will be different from our accustomed format.  Lou and Todd will not be in our meeting room, but will perform their review via online video conference.  This is a MAPS First and is an experiment.  If successful it will open up exciting new possibilities for our education programs at MAPS.

  • Photo Outing – Saturday, Nov. 17 – 1:00-7:00 pm – The Sandhill Crane Experience – Bus trip to Jasper Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. We will be joining the Forest Preserve District of Will County on a bus trip to Jasper Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area.  Because this is a piggyback event with the Forest Preserve, MAPS members will need to make their own individual reservations plus pay the $15 program fee.  We will all meet at the Plum Creek Nature Center located at 27064 S. Dutton Road, north of Goodenow Road, in Crete Township near Beecher and be aboard the bus a little over an hour.  Registration details click here.

  • Monday, December 10 – MAPS Annual Holiday Party

    Our annual Holiday Party for MAPS members and their guests will be held on Monday, December 10th from 6:30-9:00 in the Arbor Room at Thornhill. Our Holiday Party is always lots of fun! Read more and sign up for the party on our Social Events page.
