We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.

View the "My Judging Criteria used to determine contest winners.


Communing with nature can be emotionally healing, relaxing, helpful in caring for our planet, or simply gardening for the beauty of flowers and obtaining tasty produce from one's own backyard.

Enjoying nature can occur within the confines of one's home. It only requires a glance out a window to connect with the flight of a bird. Within the same room it may be just the watering of an indoor plant given by a loved one.

The width and breadth of connecting with nature can fit any place or time. National, state and local parks offer dramatic views, geological and human histories as well as those of animals we otherwise would never see or learn about. In this contest, we're looking for ways to bond with nature and why.
