Ohioans are stewards of diverse and precious resources: eight million acres of hardwood forests, powerful waterways like the Ohio River and one of Earth’s largest freshwater bodies—Lake Erie. Our freshwater resources sustain wildlife, nourish crops, support economies and provide clean water for our families. Our Appalachian forests to the south support a rich array of plant and animal species, help clean our air and water, draw thousands of visitors each year, and provide forest products and related jobs.
We need nature. Nature needs you.
Help us show, through your photographs, the irreplaceable value of Ohio’s natural areas both to you personally and humankind.
We are asking that interested individuals submit photos through Flickr™. Please tag your images with “OH-TNC” and your photo may be used to help inspire others and support conservation projects in Ohio. Photos of Nature Conservancy preserves in Ohio as well as project areas—Lake Erie, the Ohio River and Appalachian forests—are especially welcome.
