Photo Outings

Each month MAPS selects a location around the Chicagoland area to go for a Photo Outing. The major theme for these outings is nature. We select one outing per month, and you can see when and where we go below.

Please note that you can sign up for each event listed below by following the specified link. Also note that by signing up for each event you are agreeing to the MAPS Photo Outing Waiver of Liability.

After the photo outing, you can share a few of your images with the others. You know the routine: 1000 pixels on the long side, saved as JPG with a sRGB color space, then you can drag and drop them to Google Photo using the link below.

If you are not sure how to prepare or upload your images, please follow the detailed instructions in these documents:

Lilacia Park was designed by one of America’s most famous landscape artists, and started with only two flower cuttings.
