Tree Conservancy of Darien has a photography contest for all ages: “Celebration of Trees”. It is open to anyone who resides or works in Darien. Submitted photographs will help showcase the historic, the majestic and the most attractive and unusual of our town’s trees.
Take a photo of a Darien tree, or submit a tree photo you’ve taken in the last two years. All accepted photos will be matted and displayed at the Darien Nature Center from Friday, March 1 to Friday, April 19, 2013. Photographs will be judged by a panel of tree and photography experts, and prizes will be awarded in several categories.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 1, 2013 at the Darien Nature Center from 6 – 8 p.m.
