In observance of the Spring Equinox and the changing seasons, last month’s photo of the month theme was transformation. April 22nd is Earth Day, so April’s Photo of the Month theme will be all about places, species, and ways of life you would like to preserve for future generations.

April’s Photo of the Month Theme Is: “Preservation”

Earth Day is a worldwide celebration of the planet and the preservation of all Earth has to offer. In honor of Earth Day, we invite you to submit a photo of something you’d like to preserve and share with your children and your children’s children.

Do you have a photo of a favorite beach, camping spot, neighborhood park or perhaps a family tradition that you want to preserve? Whatever is it you want to safeguard, send us a photo and start a conversation about what is important for us to protect for future generations.

A selected photo will be featured on our next email Newsletter, plus an album of selected entries will be published on our website and Facebook page.
