Conservation Expo featured amateur photo contest

GRAYLING – The Crawford-Roscommon Conservation District joined the Farm Market at the AuSable River Center in Roscommon for their Annual Conservation Expo.

This is a great local partnership, quotes Barb Stauffer, District Manager.  People stopping by could pick up their tree seedlings they had previously ordered, purchase Michigan books, obtain environmental information while discussing their property with the technical staff, shop at the farm market, purchase raffle tickets to take home a prize and winning amateur photos were chosen by the public.  The Historical Train Club was providing train rides for families & the museum was open.

Attendees had their chance to purchase raffle tickets in hopes of winning one of the 50 prizes that were so graciously donated by directors, friends, family, Tractor Supply and the conservation district; among them were a pickup truck load of firewood, some antique lumbermen tools, bird houses & feeders, baskets of home-made and/or home grown items, books, framed art, golf gift certificates, electric ice cream maker, gardening supplies, planters, maple syrup, honey, tree seedlings & a hand-crocheted rug. A 50/50 raffle was also held; and each visitor could take home a tree seedling.

36 photos were submitted this year and were on display for the public to vote on.  Over 200 people attended this popular event.
