SIX SUBJECT CATERGORIES

Plantlife -- Snap that perfect shot of a flower in bloom, leaves dangling on a tree branch, or ferns carpeting the forest floor.

Wildlife -- Capture your favorite wildlife or try to get a shot of one of the more illusive species in the Valley. From squirrels to birds, insects to deer, even foxes and snakes, the choice is yours.

Family & Friends -- You help make our place special. Our visitors, members, and supporters are as integral a part of the landscape as the flora, fauna, and scenic views. Enter photos of you and your friends and family at your favorite spot, whether you’re visiting for a special event, a guided walk, or just to enjoy the outdoors on a lazy afternoon.

Scenics -- We have many diverse and beautiful landscapes in the Charles River Valley. It can be a woodland trail, the view from a scenic overlook, or a grassy meadow. Have fun and be creative.

New Discoveries -- The Charles River Valley boasts many spectacular natural areas, including several hidden gems off the beaten path. We invite you to explore these places and bring your camera! (Reservations in the New Discoveries category are: Fork Factory Brook, Shattuck Reservation, Charles River Peninsula, Chase Woodlands, Peters Reservation, Pegan Hill, Medfield Rhododendrons, Medfield Meadow Lots, Bridge Island Meadows, and Cedariver.)

On the Farm -- Come visit us at Powisset Farm in Dover and see our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Snap photographs of our hardworking crew of farmers and volunteers tending to crops in the field, or stroll down the farm lane and visit the pigs.
