Trees of the Tri-Counties!

From their bark and leaves to their ecosystems and inhabitants, each tree is unique. The tri-counties (Santa Barbara County, San Luis Obispo County and Ventura County) are home to a diverse range of tree species that make our landscape beautiful. Explore the life cycle, those who call it home, the threats they face, and their individuality. The Wildling wants photographers to get creative with the theme and discover trees in new and interesting ways. Get up close and personal – observe form, texture, shape. How are they rooted in the land? Who lives in their branches?

As a complement to the oak habitat mural by John Iwerks, the adult competition will be on view in the second floor gallery and the junior competition will be featured in the Barbara Goodall Education Center. Awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be awarded in both categories. Entries for the adult and junior competitions are due May 1, 2017.
