April 17, 2012 04:39PM
WASHINGTON – Don’t forget your camera as you head outdoors this spring: the National Natural Landmarks Program annual photo contest is now open and accepting entries.

“This is the 50th anniversary of the program and we hope people will join the celebration by photographing one of America’s National Natural Landmarks,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “We’re looking for images that capture the beauty and diversity of these natural areas.”

Winning photographs will be featured in the 2013 National Natural Landmarks calendar. Contest entries will be accepted through June 30. Winners will be announced in September. Each photographer can submit up to three entries. There are no restrictions on the date of a photograph; however, please remember that “old” slides and prints often lose their quality over time.

Each photograph must be from a different national natural landmark. Images of the 13 sites featured in the 2012 calendar will not be accepted. Those winning photos can be viewed at http://www.nature.nps.gov/nnl/currentwinners.cfm

For full contest information and submission requirements for the ninth annual contest, please visit http://www.nature.nps.gov/nnl/photocontest.cfm

There are nearly 600 national natural landmarks nationwide representing an array of natural features-from dinosaur tracks and fossils at the Morrison-Golden Fossil Areas, Colorado to bioluminescent waters at Puerto Mosquito, Puerto Rico to the largest impact crater known in the United States at Barringer Meteor Crater, Arizona.

National natural landmarks include features on private, state, municipal, and federal lands. Program participation is voluntary and not all landmark sites are open to the public.

National natural landmarks are designated by the Secretary of the Interior following rigorous scientific study. The National Natural Landmarks Program is managed by the National Park Service and recognizes significant examples of biological and geological features and supports the cooperative conservation of these important examples of America’s natural heritage.

Further information about the National Natural Landmarks Program, including a complete list of designated sites and their accessibility is available at http://www.nature.nps.gov/nnl/
