Take photos of 100 volunteers Great River Greening in the South Washington Conservation Corridor.
This 80-acre parcel is part of a larger greenway in the watershed providing critical native habitat and stormwater management, and will be the site of future recreational trails. We’ll be planting 3,000 oak trees grown from acorns collected as a part of the Million Acorn Challenge that Great River Greening ran for several years.
Great River Greening photo style is dynamic. In all circumstances, our goal is to bring an emotion to our images and a smile to the viewers face.
- Since many of our activities involve people, we like to focus on people in action, closely cropped and dynamic to bring an energy and freshness to the feeling.
- Small groups, captured with unique perspectives and angles with an artful composition.
- Large groups in vista settings, where people are part of the nature that is being photographed
- Inter-generational to demonstrate enthusiasm for caring for our land for generations to come
- Kids digging in the dirt, enjoying the process of caring and conserving. This is their future. We strive to show them discovering nature, capturing wonder in the world around them.
- Environmental photos of Minnesota’s natural heritage, beauty shots of leaves, rivers, the rewards of our accomplishments. It may be a bird in an oak tree or a turtle in a river.
This project is made possible with support from the South Washington Watershed District and the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
