The 6th annual National Natural Landmarks photo contest is underway.  The National Natural Landmarks Program, administered by the National Park Service, was established to identify and recognize outstanding examples of our country’s natural history.  It is the only natural areas program of national scope that recognizes the best examples of biological and geological features in both public and private ownership.  Site designations are made by the Secretary of the Interior following an extensive evaluation process and the landowner’s concurrence. There are currently 586 National Natural Landmarks nationwide.  Deadline to enter the
