PA Parks and Forests Foundation Photo Gallery Tour Coming To State Capitol Feb. 2
Individuals from all over Pennsylvania participated in the PA Parks and Forests Foundation’s Parks & Forests Through the Seasons Photo Contest in the spring and summer of 2014. The winning photographs will be put on display in the State Capitol Building Harrisburg, in the East Wing Rotunda, from February 2 through 28.
The PPFF contest included six categories: Appreciation of Beauty, Kids in the Outdoors, Outdoor Recreation, Dogs in the Outdoors, Volunteers in Action, and the newest division, Young Photographers.
All photos were taken in one of PA’s many state parks or forest lands, and judging for the contest was done by popular vote on Facebook, and by critic’s choice. Winning photographs can be viewed at the Foundation’s Facebook page.
The photos are captivating. They represent the strong bond with nature that builds a respect and appreciation for Pennsylvania’s public lands, so that they may be enjoyed year round.
