By PAULA ENGELHARDT El Camino Real Master Naturalists

It’s the perfect time to be outside with your camera.

The El Camino Real Chapter of Master Naturalists will sponsor a Nature Photo Contest in conjunction with the Milam County Nature Festival, scheduled for June 11-12 at Wilson- Ledbetter Park in Cameron.

There will be adult and junior divisions. Participants can enter their photos in five categories including:

• People in Nature • Wildlife • Landscape/Scenery • Plants

• Funny Nature Photo Entries will be judged prior to the festival and the deadline for entries is May 21.

All entries (space permitting) and winning photographs will be on display for public viewing during festival hours at the nature festival site on June 12. There will be a short awards ceremony at the end of the day, honoring the contest winners. At this time, entrants may pick up their photos.

Contest rules and guidelines, entry forms and information on how to submit photographs can be picked up at the Agrilife Extension Office in Cameron at the corner of 1st and Central, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. or obtained from the El Camino Real website at: http:// grovesite.com/tmn/ecrmn/photocontest.
