Exhibit of Winning Photos from Wild Rivers Land Trust Photo Contest

On Earth Day, April 22nd, winning photos from Wild Rivers
Land Trust’s inaugural photo contest will be exhibited at Coos Bay/North Bend
Visitors Center – 50 Central Ave, Coos Bay, and Coos History Museum – 1210 N.
Front St, Coos Bay. 

The shows will run through the end of May. You can view all
the winning photos on our website: https://www.wildriverslandtrust.org/photo-contest.html
This new event was designed to help share the natural abundance
of wildlife on private lands along the southern Oregon coast. The 2020 Wild
Rivers Land Trust Outdoor Photography Contest paired regional private
landowners with wildlife photographers for a friendly competition showcasing
water, land, wildlife and plants found on the Oregon South Coast. The contest
teamed each photographer with a landowner who competed with other teams to
photograph a diversity of wildlife, plants and scenery.  

This is the first of its kind on the Oregon Coast with plans
to expand the event in 2021. In 2020, the prize purse was $3,500 for the
winning teams, over 7 categories, split evenly between the landowner and the
photographer on the team. It is modeled after a successful long running event
in Texas.
