“We’re excited about this contest not only because it’s fun to give away prizes, but it’s also a great way to showcase our gorgeous conservation areas while promoting the importance of spending quality time in the great outdoors,” says Glenda Rodgers, Lower Trent Conservation CAO.  “Being in nature is well-known for benefitting both body and mind.”
