Background: What's a photo safari? It's a free event in which we ask participants to sharpen their photography skills and digital literacy. We ask people for permission in taking photos and take pictures that document the place, including shots of local trees and random reptiles! The second phase is using relevant social web, including Flickr Groups, Facebook events, Foursquare and other social web channels. If you cannot join us in person, you are cordially invited to use these same sites to like, star, favorite or give a thumb's up. Be generous!
