March 5, 2018 - March 23, 2018 @ Conservation Center
Do you enjoy taking pictures in Story County parks? Story County Conservation sponsors an annual photo contest to encourage the public to visit and photograph the beauty and recreational activities in SCC parks and natural areas. Categories include landscape, flora and fungi, fauna, and connecting people and recreation.
Contest photos may be submitted March 5 - 23 at the conservation center; each photographer may submit up to three entries. Youth entries (18 years or younger) will be judged separately. Prizes will be awarded at the Spring Festival at McFarland Park on May 6! Photos from last year’s contest can be found on our Facebook page.
