Audubon Accepting 2017 Nature Photo Contest Entries

Audubon Accepting 2017 Nature Photo Contest Entries

Jamestown, NY – Entries have begun to arrive for Audubon Community Nature Center’s 2017 Nature Photography Contest.

Now in its seventh year, the competition is designed to encourage anyone who enjoys doing photography – from beginners to professionals – to enter their images for consideration.

“The Photo Contest helps us fulfill our mission of connecting people with nature in two ways,” said Audubon Photo Contest Coordinator Ruby Miller. “The photographer experiences nature while shooting pictures and the viewer becomes inspired to connect with nature when looking at the often stunning results.”

Prizes are awarded in four categories and two divisions. The Youth Division is for ages 8-18 or still in high school; Adult is 18 and over or post-high school.

Audubon Nature Center’s July 30 Wild 5K Run/Walk Adds Awards Group

Jamestown, NY – Whatever your age, whether you like to run or if walking is more your speed, there’s a spot for you at the Audubon Nature Center’s Wild 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, July 30.

Thanks to requests from participants, a new age group has been added to this year’s competition.  Now with a 70+ category for both walkers and runners, those 70 and older will no longer have to compete against 60-year-olds.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three overall male and female walker and runner finishers. Age group awards will be given to the top three finishers in each for runners and top finisher in each for walkers. Age groups are 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+. The awards ceremony will begin at 10:30 for those who have finished.

While Trackqua speeds up the registration process and provides chip-timed results, you can enjoy exceptional natural beauty and help restore and preserve an incredible woodland habitat.
