Conservation Nature Photo Contest begins

     Do you have a great nature photograph taken someplace in Jones County? Maybe it’s on your Facebook page or on your phone. Here’s your chance to show it off.

     Enter the 2019 Jones County Conservation Nature Photography Contest.  First through third place prizes will be awarded for the following categories: “People in Nature,” “Plants in Nature,” “Scenic Jones County,” and “Animals in Nature.” You don’t have to be an expert photographer to enter. This contest is for fun and is open to all ages and abilities.

     Examples of good topics include birds at your feeders, beautiful sunsets, the wrath of mother nature, family members spending time outside, a beautiful spring wildflower, a close up picture of a spider or creepy crawler, that huge morel mushroom, or fox kits near their den. Print your pic and send it in.

     All entries are due Friday, May 31. Photos will be on display at the Central Park Nature Center from mid-June through the end of August. Photos entered should be taken in Jones County.

     If you have one or more photos you would like to enter in this fun contest, contact Michele at 563-487-3541 or 319-481-7987 to receive an entry form. Entry forms may also be downloaded at https://www.jonescountyiowa.org/downloads. Prizes include free camping, paddle boating, and kayaking gift certificates, bird feeders, and other Natural Resource items.
