MCWD Photo Contest

Our Earth Day Photo Contest is back!  From South Minneapolis to Watertown Township, Laketown Township to Medina, we think our watershed is awfully photogenic! There is endless beauty on and around the 181 lakes, eight major streams and thousands of wetlands within the MCWD, and we want to see how you captured it. 

Our 50th Anniversary also gives us a chance to revisit our favorite memories, places, and things to do in the watershed - and we want to see YOURS!  We encourage you to submit pictures of you enjoying the resources our watershed has to offer.  

Submit a photo through the form below or tag @minnehahacreekwd on Instagram to submit. Enter by Friday, April 14.

The winners will be announced on April 21 - and first place entries will receive 2 complimentary tickets to our end of year Sunset Celebration on Thursday, November 2nd featuring live music, food, and drink (more details coming soon).  Winning entries will also be featured in the MCWD's annual report (first place only), e-newsletter, website front page, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Check out last year's winners here!
