WILLAPA BAY - The Friends of Willapa National Wildlife Refuge are launching their third annual photo contest, dedicated to showcasing Willapa Refuge, with its rich diversity of wildlife and habitat.

Your photos can help promote our area's magnificent 17,000-acre federal lands system. Thirteen photos will be selected to be used for the 2011 Willapa Refuge calendar.

You can submit up to 10 digital photos that have been taken within the past two years. Entries can be submitted between April 15 and June 1. The three categories that photographers can enter are:

? Wildlife native to the area

? Flora native to the area

? Scenic views within Willapa Refuge.

For contest details, contact Patty Wood at (photocontest@friendsofwillaparefuge.org) or at 665-3809.
