Wild & Scenic – Water is life. The wild rivers and waterways of Oregon have sustained the living creatures and peoples of this land for millennia, and over the last 40+ years, Oregon Wild has worked to ensure these waters continue to do so for future generations. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act – which has safeguarded 58 Oregon rivers for their unique scenic, ecological, recreational, cultural, and geological qualities – so we’re celebrating with a special photo contest focus this year along with special hikes along Wild & Scenic rivers through our 2018 Outdoor Program. Whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer, you can help us put the focus on our stunning peaks, vibrant forests, dynamic rivers, and precious wildlife and help give them and us a future simply by entering the 14th annual Outdoor Photo Contest.
Photographers of all ages and abilities can enter photos in the 14th annual Outdoor Photo Contest’s four main categories (see below). By capturing and sharing what you love about Oregon as only a nature photographer can, you’ll help spread awareness and passion for safeguarding our natural world for generations to come. Help us keep Oregon Wild & Scenic…
