Default NJ Photo Contest Puts Focus on Open Space Protection

The NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection has launched a photo contest in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the first Green Acres Bond Act. Since 1961, voters have approved every bond act put before them, resulting in the protection of 650,000 acres of open space and development of hundreds of outdoor recreational facilities.

The contest is open to anyone six years of age or older. The goal is to photograph a New Jersey park or open space property that is preserved with Green Acres funds. Many of these properties are marked with distinctive green and white "Green Acres" signs. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 16.

In addition to hundreds of municipal and county projects such as parks and playgrounds, most State Parks, State Forests and Wildlife Management Areas have been funded with Green Acres money.

For more information on the contest, visit http://www.state.nj.us/dep/newsrel/2011/11_0072.htm on the DEP website.
