THROUGH THE LENS: Alabama Hosts Outdoor Photography Contest | WDHN

WIREGRASS, Ala (WDHN)—Do you have a camera and an eye for the outdoors? If so, you could win the Alabama National Parks and USDA Forest Service’s “From Lens to Ground” Photography Contest!

The USDA Forest Service kicks off National Public Lands Day (NLPD) with a photography contest for Alabama’s National Forests.

You are invited to take your camera and explore the vast natural sights that Alabama’s national parks have to offer.

Alabama has four national forests:

  • Bankhead National Forest
  • Conecuh National Forest
  • Talladega National Forest
  • Tuskegee National Forest

The “From Goal to Earth” competition will run from September 24 to October 17. The first-place contestant will have their winning photo featured on the National Forests in Alabama website and social media accounts. The winner will also receive a free day pass to any Alabama National Forest location of their choice.

Whether you decide to volunteer at one of the parks to help out or simply enjoy the outdoor beauty, every Alabamian is encouraged to take photos of how you engage with nature and submit them to the contest.

Submit up to three photos to [email protected] for a chance to win!

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest one-day volunteer event for public lands. Volunteers are encouraged to help restore and improve state and national public lands. It is also a “no charge day” where most park entry fees and activities are waived.
