Our theme, Worth Conserving, reflects Legacy’s commitment to land conservation and stewardship.
Legacy’s goal is to conserve valued lands in and around Mountain View County, including Clearwater County, Red Deer County, Kneehill County, Rocky View County, and the MD of Bighorn.
Please submit photos taken in this general area. (Subjects must be local and native to this region. No polar bears, wild horses or mountain goats, please.)
We’d love to see your photos showcasing a variety of life in all seasons—so give us your best shots!
Our conservation work focuses on three areas: ecological, agricultural and heritage/historical.
If this is your first time submitting photos, you may find the following ideas helpful. Please remember, they’re only suggestions—a jumping-off point for your creativity!
Landscapes in various seasons and times of day / Invertebrates (bugs, spiders, slugs, aquatic insects) / Fish / Toads & frogs / Lizards & snakes / Birds / Small mammals (mice, voles, hares) / Large mammals (beaver, deer, elk, bears). /Plants (grasses, mushrooms; seldom seen flowers) / People, all ages, enjoying the outdoors (skiing, canoeing, hiking, painting).

Briefly describe your image. (eg. crab spider on wild rose; frost on pine needles).
In 70 words or less, tell us why you think the subject of your photo is worth conserving.
