Fall is here -- even though it doesn't always feel that way. Trees will soon be blazing with the reds, yellows and oranges of the season. If you like to snap photos, you'll find plenty of natural beauty in your own backyard. This year's photo contest sponsored by the Schuylkill Conservation District has a theme especially suited to autumn vistas: Landscapes of Schuylkill County. They further noted that the judges have a preference for the mountains of Schuylkill County.
Each photographer (all ages and levels of experience) may enter one photograph - no entry fee. Photos must be taken in Schuylkill County between January 1, 2019 and March 1, 2020 and submitted by March 8, 2020.
