Neat Photos from around the BCFDC

Marsh grasses illuminated by the morning sun - Photo by Marcie Callewaert
In spirit with the BCFDC's 2011 photo contest, I have compiled some neat shots of the flora and fauna at the Centre, to give just one idea of what type of subject matter you could capture! There is an abundance of critters big and small on site, and any one of them could be the subject of YOUR winning entry!

Photo contest rules and entry forms can be picked up at the Admissions desk during open hours. Cash prizes for first through fourth place will be awarded in each category. Categories include Youth (0-12 years), Teen (13-19 years) and Adult (20+).  The submission deadline for photos is Wednesday, August 31st 2011. We look forward to your entries! 

Enjoy the following photos and get inspired!

A unique photo showing a "staff only" view of the trestle. One of the benefits of being a staff or volunteer at the Centre is the ability to go places visitors cannot - due to extra training and knowledge about operation protocols.  - Photo by Marcie Callewaert
