Earth Calendar for July 11th and July 12th

Jul 11, 2014

Take a Photo, Win a Car! Experiencing nature is closer and easier than you think! If you're a resident of Ohio or Indiana, you're invited to compete in The Nature Conservancy’s Natural Treasures challenge this summer for a chance to win a Honda Civic Hybrid.

Participating is easy. Simply take a photo of yourself at a designated Natural Treasures location, and share it on the Nature Conservancy’s website for a chance to win. Entries can be submitted officially August 1st, but you can start planning now.
Begin by downloading a map of Natural Treasures locations. You can receive one contest entry for each designated site you visit. Try your best to make sure to identify the location in your photo!  A winner will be selected at random after the contest closes September 30th.
Do you have a personal Natural Treasure? You can also enter to win by submitting a photo of yourself at your favorite place in nature. These entries are limited to one per e-mail address.
The Nature Conservancy is a private conservation organization working around the world to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends. Learn more about the Nature Conservancy’s work to protect nature and the photo contest at the website.

On Our Calendar: We love to eat straight from the garden in the summer, and so do some of our favorite insects. Munch your way through the garden and discover what bugs help our garden grow, July 19th, 10:30 am at the Civic Garden Center.  For cost and registration for Garden Bugs please the website.
