Our MG Writers and MG Photographers
Donya Camp (MG ’05)

We have a talented group of digital photographers. The demonstration garden next to the Galveston County Extension Office is a favorite setting for taking nature photographs. Look carefully and you may see what the camera in the photo to the left is being aimed at (a green anole lizard, Anolis carolinensis).

The Galveston County Master Gardener program has an diverse array of talented and dedicated volunteers. We are encouraged to find our “educational niche” but also we support each other—and the Galveston County Extension Office.

For example, we have volunteers who enjoy writing and volunteers who enjoy photography. In developing this Plant Problem Solver Guides for Gardeners web page, Master Gardeners with an interest in writing and those with an interest in photography collaborated together to produce this web page.
