Calling all Photographers
The Friends of Erie National Wildlife Refuge and the Presque Isle Audubon Society invite all amateur photographers to enter their 15th biennial Nature Photo Contest for 2015. Here’s your chance to submit photos in any or all of three categories: plant life, wildlife and landscape. Prizes are awarded for each category-both cash prizes and honorable mentions. A $75 cash prize is awarded for best photo taken at the Refuge. But photos don’t have to be taken there to be submitted for entry.
Erie National Wildlife Refuge is over 5,000 acres of diverse habitat in and around Guys Mills, Pennsylvania, which is 10 miles east of Meadville. The Refuge was established in 1959 to provide migratory birds with nesting, feeding and resting sites. The Refuge is designated by the National Audubon Society as an Important Birding Area. Over 230 species of birds can be seen there.
Deadline for entry of photos is September 25th. Official contest rules can be found on the web at www.friendsofenwr.org or call the Refuge office at 814-789-3585.
