And now a word from Nature Canada to share:
The weather is great, gardens are blooming, and the hiking paths are dry. Hopefully you have some exciting outdoor adventures planned for the next few months. Whatever you envision doing, make sure you take along your sunscreen, hat, and camera to capture the moment!
Since we can’t explore the great outdoors with you, we would love to view your pictures! When you come inside for a break and a quick snack, why not share your best nature photos with us! To celebrate our upcoming 75th anniversary in September 2014, we are launching a nature photography contest designed to get more Canadians outdoors connecting with nature across the summer months. It’s a simple way for you, your family or your friends to explore nature whether nearby in your NatureHood, at your cottage or during your summer vacation. It is our hope that by spending time in nature you will explore and adore our natural heritage and all that our environment has to offer us.
We have some pretty prestigious nature-loving judges who will make the final decision when it comes time to choose the winners. Among them are
– Micheal Tayler, Canadian Olympian in canoe and kayak slalom
– Micheal Runtz, Ottawa-based photographer and nature enthusiast
– Les Stroud, better known as TV’s “Survivorman”
Yes, that’s right. Survivorman himself will give his opinion on the best photos entered into out contest.
In addition to these amazing judges, our constantly growing list of prizes is pretty outstanding as well. These include a Park Pass for unlimited access to our national parks and a 3 day parkhorse expedition trip for 2 generously donated by Copper Cayuse Outfitters. Check out all the details and more at www.naturecanada.ca/photocontest.
Get outside, get active, and take some pictures while you’re at it! For more information or answers to any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 1-800-267-4088 ext. 229.
Yours for nature,
Executive Director (interim)
