The Millers River Watershed Council (MRWC) is pleased to announce the first-ever Millers River and Watershed Photo Contest and Exhibition, co-sponsored by the Athol Public Library. The exhibition will run during the month of October, 2018, before moving to other watershed venues. MRWC aims for the Photo Contest and Exhibition to inspire watershed residents and visitors alike to explore, appreciate, and help protect the 50-mile long Millers River and its surrounding watershed of 400 square miles—including numerous tributaries, streams, lakes, and ponds.

Contest guidelines are available at Images must be received ready-to-hang by the Athol Library after August 17th and no later than 5 pm on Monday, September 24th, 2018. All submissions meeting the guidelines will be judged by noted nature photographers Paul Rezendes of Athol, Bill Fournier of Gardner, and Dale Monette of New Salem.

A map showing the watershed’s boundaries, including all or parts of 17 Massachusetts and six New Hampshire towns (and one city–Gardner), is available on the MRWC website. For more information email or leave a phone message at 978-248-9491.
