The Churchville Photography Club is celebrating its 30th year in 2014/15.  The club started as an outgrowth of courses that Scott Petersen offered at the Churchville Nature Center in 1983 and 1984. His courses were on the basics of photography and black & white developing and printing. Current and past students started to meet informally at the Churchville Nature Center in April 1985 to continue the learning process by sharing their experiences and bringing in guest lecturers.

From modest beginnings of 9 to 10 members, the Club now counts close to 100 members on its roster. Over the years the Club has presented programs from Len LeRue III, Irene Hinke Sacilotto, Ernest Wildi, Art Morris, Lewis Kemper, Tom ikland, Michael Smith and Tony Sweet along with other local talents. The Club has sponsored an Annual Nature Photography Contest since 1990, which has now grown to a showcase of over 400 entries each year.
