The 2014 Faces & Places photo contest winners have been announced! We received some fantastic entries from across the nation--32 states and more than 115 public lands were represented in this year's contest.
Photos highlighted an array of activities and landscapes including volunteers planting milkweed to rehabilitate a butterfly habitat, a young boy and his grandfather enjoying wildflowers and friends going geocatching.
In her grand prize winning video "Rolling into Riverlands", Romanda Walker of Missouri showed how public lands can be accessible to us all. Romanda visits the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary to go bird watching, spend time on trails and fish along the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers.
Maya Breitburg-Smith of New Haven, Conn. shows us how she protects her favorite public land: street trees. The trees that line New Haven inspire Maya daily and remind her that you do not have to travel far to experience the wonders of nature.
