DEP Celebrates Florida's Rivers Month with Photo Contest

Published 06-10-2008
Governor Charlie Crist recently signed a proclamation honoring June as Florida Rivers Month, recognizing the more than 50,000 miles of rivers and streams throughout the state. Florida’s famed waterways include the 310-mile St. Johns River, one of the only rivers in North America flowing north, as well as two designated National Wild & Scenic Rivers, the Wekiva and Loxahatchee Rivers.

Color photos will be accepted through July 31, 2008 and should capture the environmental richness, unique landscape, flora and fauna, human involvement, recreational opportunities or simply the exceptional beauty of Florida’s rivers and surrounding landscapes. Photographs will be judged in six geographic categories with specific river basins within each region.
