Throughout the year, the 91-acre Charles L. Bowers School Farm educates students of all ages about science, agriculture, and livestock. But as the season's change, so does the farm's lineup of family-friendly outdoor activities, welcoming guests of all ages for autumnal activities including corn mazes, pumpkin picking, and wagon rides. Like the 1958 Plymouth Fury, the farm's corn mazes come in both haunted and unhaunted varieties, challenging explorers of all ages with 2.5 miles of twisting, turning paths. Should they find their way out, guests can reacclimate to life on the outside by striking up conversation with the resident rabbits, sheep, and llamas. From there, they explore the pumpkin patch for a perfect pie or jack-o'-lantern candidate or ride one of the farm's ponies, which turn into pumpkins at midnight.
SwingTEK Golf Academy invites golfers to hone their skills year-round. Inside the 6,800-square-foot facility, visitors can practice their swings at five hitting bays; chip their way out of a sand bunker; and improve their short game on a 900-square-foot putting green. They can also have their swings analyzed by the academy's advanced software, including a wireless biomechanical vest. Outfitted with sensors, this vest measures rotation, pitch, and tilt of a player's body and swing movements, spitting out results in seconds to make tracking progress easy. After perfecting their approach, golfers can show off their skills during rounds on the facility's high-def simulator, which is pre-loaded with more than 15 of the world's most renowned courses.
Nature photographer Mike Moats deals exclusively in evocative and otherworldly up-close shots. His workshops can last anywhere from three hours to three days, and cover general image-making techniques, such as controlling depth of field, composition methods, and postshoot digital processing. Moats also teaches his students to think like photographers: lessons often cover selecting a subject in any season and working in natural light. With proper grounding in the theory and practice of shooting tiny subjects, macro-photographers will have plenty to shoot no matter where they live, unlike photographers who specialize in Leap Day lunar eclipses. :m]]
