Goldstream Nature House seeks shutterbugs

Staff are calling for submissions to the Goldstream Provincial Park photo contest, which wraps up July 15.

A photo is worth a thousand words and possibly a prize pack from the Goldstream Nature House.

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.

“We are looking for photos of wildlife, kids or seasonal photos,” said park naturalist Bre Robinson. “We are just asking people to bring in photos taken at the park from any point in history.”

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.

Prizes will be awarded to the best photos taken by an adult and a child. The prize packs will have an assortment of souvenirs from the nature house.

Photos can be submitted in person at the Goldstream Nature House or by email at goldstream@naturehouse.ca. For more information call 250-478-9414.
