2020 OLCV Nature Nearby Photo Contest Winners

We announced the winner of the Nature Nearby Photo Contest at our 2020 Annual Celebration for the Environment. In case you missed it, the grand-prize winner is…Eileen Stark! Eileen captured a beautiful moment between a mama and baby bird, allowing us to zoom in and experience nature at its most quiet and intimate. What a difficult shot, and what gorgeous detail! Congrats, Eileen!

Congratulations to our grand-prize winner, Eileen Stark!
