Spring Fling Open House at
Six Rivers Land Conservancy
Six Rivers Land Conservancy will announce the winners of its "Nature Near You" Photo Contest and auction prints of the winning photos at its 3rd annual Spring Fling Open House, from 6-9 p.m, Thursday, March 20, at the Paint Creek Cider Mill, 4480 Orion Road, Oakland Township.
A panel of judges selected the winners from more than 180 entries in junior and senior categories. Prints of the judges top five picks in the junior category and top 10 picks in the senior category will be offered in a silent auction and prizes will be awarded for the top three picks in each category. Attendees will vote for a "Peoples' Choice" selection for both categories and prizes will be awarded for those as well.
The photos in the contest came from throughout Six Rivers' service area, which includes the watersheds of the Belle, Clinton, Flint, Huron, Rouge and Shiawassee rivers in Oakland, Macomb, Lapeer, Genesee and St. Clair counties. The panel of judges is comprised of six local photographers: The husband and wife team of professional wildlife photographers Carl R. Sams and Jean Stoick; jeweler, artist and photographer Steven Tapper; Jim Haefner, professional automotive and architecture photographer; professor at Macomb County Community College photography program Frank Lombardo, and nature photographer Richard Thompson.
There were two divisions in the contest, a junior division for students 24 years and younger, and a senior division for entrants 25 and up.
Refreshments will be served and highlights of Six Rivers' recent activities will be shared during the evening's festivities. The organization will hold a short business meeting at the beginning of the open house to elect board members and officers for the coming year.
