Staff at the nature house are calling for submissions to the Goldstream Provincial Park photo contest.

Rachelle Polsom, a professional studio photographer, was at the nature house on Tuesday taking photos that she might enter into the contest.

The contest began in January and wraps up July 15. Anyone can submit great photos that have been taken in the park. All photos collected may be used on the for promotion for the park.

“This is just a fun thing to enter and we’ll put some of the winning photos up in the nature house,” Robinson said.
