REGION- The Huron-Manistee National Forests are now accepting entries for the 2023 Kirtland’s Warbler Young Artists Contest.
The contest’s intent is to teach children about the rare Kirtland’s warbler and its habitat. Proceeds of the calendar support the US Forest Service Kirtland’s warbler educational efforts.
Entries to the contest must be original and demonstrate an understanding of the Kirtland’s warbler or any other creatures that live in northern Michigan’s unique jack pine forests, or its winter habitat site in The Bahamas.
All entries must be submitted no later than Mar. 10, 2023, to the Mio Ranger District Office. Artwork entries become the property of the USDA Forest Service and will not be returned.
