|On Golden Pond - By Kim Morris, 1st place Beginner/Intermediate Wildlife, 2016|
Have you heard this saying about visiting a refuge or wilderness area, "Leave only footprints, take only memories"? Well, you can also take away "digitized memories" aka photographs. Photography at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most popular activities. Now you have an opportunity to share some of your best efforts and compete for cash, ribbons, and recognition as well in the 8th Annual Hagerman NWR Photography Contest.
