The Conservation District is sponsoring a photo contest for amateur photographers. The contest is open to people who do not take pictures for profit. You can enter photos in four different categories including agriculture, wildlife, people enjoying nature, or plants/landscapes. Examples of photos for the categories are Agriculture - anything from a fields, livestock, to 4H youth, Wildlife - deer running through the woods or a bird nest in an urban neighborhood, People enjoying nature - canoeing, hiking, and gardening, Plants and Landscapes - sunsets, city parks or other impressive views are appropriate for this category. You may submit one photo per category, however only one prize will be awarded per person. The photos must be taken in Eaton County.
