Concord, NH --Last summer Five Rivers Conservation Trust asked folks who live into the Concord area to share photos of themselves and families enjoying the many miles of trails that interlace the 56 properties that the group has protected. By the time the contest closed, more than 40 images had been submitted. The contest was a way to celebrate the group’s 25th anniversary. Now the winners have been chosen, and the images are on their way to being share with everyone.
The 40 entries came from 18 participants with 10 different winners across four categories. All the photos submitted represented 11 of the Five Rivers properties across six towns. Categories included people/pet, scenery, something amazing, and wildlife categories with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards being offered.
All photos were submitted on the Five River Facebook page, and were judged by a group of local celebrities, including Concord Insider Editor Keith Testa, and radio personality Peter St. James. https://www.facebook.com/FiveRiversNH/info
The winning images are on display on Facebook and on the Five Rivers website. This week the images will be framed at Rowland Studios and then displayed at Grappone Toyota and the Red River Theatre.
Five Rivers Conservation Trust, headquartered in Concord, New Hampshire, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting open space across the heartland of central New Hampshire. This beautiful rolling landscape is drained by five waterways that converge in the Concord area – the Merrimack, Contoocook, Blackwater, Warner, and Soucook Rivers. It is a region of picturesque country villages and a delightful mix of fields and forests, farms and wetlands, and other special places. Through conservation easements and other means, Five Rivers is doing its part as an active land trust to help keep those places intact for future generations. www.5rct.org
