It’s Premiere Week — for Autumn! Share Photos of Your Favorite Outdoor Spaces
It’s mid-September: The days are growing shorter. The temperature is dropping. And this week, dozens of new TV shows are premiering. Are you northern-hemisphere inhabitants preparing to hibernate?
Resist! Resist! When the earth starts tilting away from the sun, we at NWF are even more motivated to shun the couch and celebrate the outdoors. And if you are the type of person that likes to organize fun around holidays, this is a BIG FUN WEEK:
- Sept. 19-22 is Great Outdoors America Week.
- Sept 23 is the first day of fall.
- Sept 24 is Public Lands Day AND Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play.
How can you celebrate, you ask? Make a bee-line to your favorite local, state, or national park, and bring your camera so you can enter National Wildlife Federation’s photo challenge. This month’s theme is “Celebrating America’s Public Lands.” We’ll pick six finalists to display on NWF’s Web site and on Flickr. Then the public will get to vote for the winner.
So whether you live next to Yellowstone or a tiny city park, we want to see your photos of the natural places that you share with your community.
