A statuesque Great blue heron, bright coral sunsets, the secret world of a tidal pool; these are just a few of the submissions to our 9th Annual Nature Photo Contest. Thank you to all who submitted entries, and to our panel of judges; Roxanne Wiggins, Shem Roberts and Randi Gumbmann Shultz. We had 18 amateur photographers submit a total of 41 photographs, spread out among five categories: Landscape, Native Creatures, Native Plants, Ocean Beach Scene, and Youth Photographer.
Our 2023 Nature Calendar features each of the winning photos below. The calendar also includes fun facts about our native species, tips on conservation, and reminders for upcoming Conservancy initiatives. The calendars will be available for sale, $25.00, this November at the following Mayne Island businesses: Books on Mayne, Dragonfly Gallery, and Home Hardware. Calendars will also be available for in-person purchase at our office. Thank you to all the business owners for supporting this fundraiser.
If you’re off-island and you’d like us to mail you a calendar (Christmas is coming!), email firstname.lastname@example.org. Mailed calendars are $28.00 to cover cost of shipping.
