This Weekend: The 2014 Upper Delaware BioBlitz

Winners of the Upper Delaware BioBlitz photo contest will be recognized on Sunday at the Ten Mile River Camp in Tusten as part of the weekend-long event celebrating the biodiversity of the Upper Delaware watershed.

Out of a pool of 300 submitted photos, the judges selected 25 winners in landscape, people, art, plants and various animal categories — which they had to subdivide even further to include more winners. 

The “Best in Show” winner was Todd Anderson’s photo “Head in Clouds,” a scene depicting a Tusten sunset in a watery reflection.

Anderson’s prize is a Canon Powershot ELPH digital camera and a framed 11x14 print of his photograph. The other first place winners will also receive framed 8.5 x 11 prints of their pictures.

In addition to the awards, attendees of the BioBlitz can check out specimens from the area, meet various scientists and tour the Ten Mile River Camp site to find out more about the different species on the property.

The second annual Upper Delaware BioBlitz will be held on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29 at the Ten Mile River Camp in Tusten, NY.  Photo Contest winners will be presented with their awards on Sunday, June 29 at 1:30 p.m. For more information, you can visit the event’s Facebook page or email
