We have seen that there is a great interest in visitors to the Arboretum in the art and science of photography. The Friends of the Morgan Arboretum wish to encourage this and have created a running contest for enthusiastic photographers.

Each month, starting in February, a theme will be announced. We ask you to submit a maximum of three photographs by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (maximum file size of 500kb each). Those judged to be the best three received each month will be published on the website and considered for use in Arboretum publications such as the calendar etc. Copyright for all other purposes will remain with the photographer. Please note that photographs should have been taken in the Arboretum in order to be considered. The interpretation of the theme topic is entirely up to you – be as creative as you wish.

The themes for 2011 are as follows:


Chickadees and Cardinals


Maple syrup season


Flowers after the snow – Trillium and Bloodroot etc.


Spring birds and blooms




Forest landscapes

Birds at the end of summer – time to leave
