It’s no secret that I love spending time at Credit Valley Conservation’s (CVC) many fantastic conservation areas. Whether it’s fishing at Island Lake Conservation Area, hiking at Silver Creek Conservation Area, or doing both at Limehouse Conservation Area, CVC parks are always a destination of choice for me.
Hopefully you’ve been able to get out and experience some of these wonderful conservation areas. Maybe you’ve headed out with your friends for a day of canoeing under a beautiful summer sky, or gone cross-country skiing on a brisk winter’s day, or maybe you’ve packed a lunch and headed out with your family for a fun and relaxing picnic. Chances are you’ve taken some photographs along the way. Here’s your chance to share them!
CVC is running a contest and wants to see your favorite pictures of how you enjoy their parks. Until November 5th, 2012, you can upload your picture to CVC’s Facebook page. A panel of judges will select their top three photos, and then the public will get the chance to vote for their favorite photo from the three finalists. The winner will receive:
- An ‘Our Credit’ annual membership
- Winning photo featured on the cover of CVC’s 2013 Conservation Areas Visitor’s Guide
- Choice of winter or summer activity rental for up to 4 people
- $100 gift card towards dinner at a local restaurant of your choice
Sounds like a great prize to me!
One of my all-time favorite pictures comes from Silver Creek Conservation Area. It was a beautiful winter day and Darrell and I figured there was no better way to spend it than by taking Jack for a hike. We had been hiking for awhile when Jack suddenly found a burst of energy and went running around like a crazy dog, only to end up jumping this monstrous downed tree. My 40-pound dog had just jumped something that would have taken me several minutes to climb over. It was the highlight of my day and something I will never forget.
If you haven’t taken advantage of the wonderful CVC parks, or maybe you haven’t visited one in awhile, now is the time to visit and take some pictures!
