Take Time to Take a Photo!
ELA’s third Spotlight on Natives Photo Contest has begun. We look forward to seeing many wonderful native plants from across the country captured in photographs. Entry is free, and you can submit photos of native plants in garden settings or photos of individual specimen.
Entries will be accepted between now and May 31 at 5:00pm. First Prize Winners receive a one-year ELA Professional Membership. Photographers receiving Honorable Recognition will earn $50 credit toward purchases at the ELA Bookstore. Winners will be announced in June. Find all the details here.
