2022-2023 Winter Photo Contest Winners

This winter, we challenge you to capture photos that inspire people to value, appreciate and support the places ACRES protects. Your submissions truly reflected the wonder of these natural areas and the joy they bring visitors.

We selected five winners from the following categories: Wildlife, People/Pets on Preserves, Selfie, Landscape and Macro Photo. Winners will receive a one-year membership, Trail Guide, sweatshirt and camp mug.
