Some say a picture is worth a thousand words, but it apparently can also be worth $150 for winners of a local photo contest sponsored by the Cottonwood Soil and Water Conservation District.
The goal of the contest, which is open to anyone, is to capture a picture of the Rusty Patched Bumblebee (Wilder had a sighting in 2012).
The pictures need to be taken in one of the CSWCD cities. Prizes include a $150 gift card to a native plant nursery for each year of 2021 and 2022 for that year’s winning photo. In addition, everyone who enters will be put into a drawing for a fancy Yeti cooler provided by the Cottonwood County Environmental Office at the end of 2022.
