The Audubon Community Nature Center’s 2019 Nature Photography Contest has Three Categories for Submission.

Jamestown is the birthplace of Lucille Ball and it's home to the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and the National Comedy Center. As a tribute to our First Lady of Comedy, one of the 2019 Nature Photography Contest categories is Naturally Funny: wildlife photos that make us smile or laugh.

Jamestown is also the birthplace of Roger Tory Peterson. It is home of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History. To honor the premier naturalist of the 20th Century and the more than 50 Peterson Field Guides, the second contest category is Field Guide Worthy: photos that could be used for identification in a field guide.

The third category is your opportunity to show the world where you think of as home. Naturally Beautiful: Show us the beautiful landscapes where you live.

The Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
