NORTH WEBSTER — We’re in the heat of lake season with Independence Day celebrations right around the corner. If you are anything like us, you have a ton of pictures — from animals and nature, to family and playtime in your camera or on your phone.
One of The Watershed Foundation favorite things to do is connecting others to the watershed community in a way that helps promote understanding about how we are all, in some way, connected to and benefit from our natural water resources.
We would love to see how you live, learn and play on our area’s lakes, land and rivers. Our annual photo contest, “Picture your Watershed” is a great way we can connect with our natural resources and our community.
Your pictures tell the story of how the lakes impact and affect your life. We would love to see them, share them, and let others know how important they are to protect and improve upon.
You can enter your pictures through The Watershed Foundation’s Facebook page by selecting the “2018 Photo Contest” tab on the top of the homepage or through our website.
The competition is open to all pictures taken in the Upper Tippecanoe River watershed, spanning from Crooked Lake in Whitley county through south of Warsaw. This area includes the following lakes: Barbee, Center, Chapman, Pike, Ridinger, Tippecanoe, Webster, Winona, as well as the Tippecanoe River and all of the land in-between.
We encourage everyone to submit their favorite pictures from the land and lakes in the Upper Tippecanoe River Watershed. Hurry though. We are only accepting pictures until Nov. 1, and then we will begin open voting for the “People’s Choice” awards.
