WHAT: To celebrate spring, wildflowers and our beautiful Santa Cruz State Parks, we are running a photo contest on our Instagram, @VisitSantaCruz, so we can share the wildflower love!
WHEN: Contest begins Tuesday, March 22, 2016 and ends Monday, April 25, 2016
WHERE: Any Santa Cruz County State Park & throughout Santa Cruz County
HOW: Simply snap a picture of some wildflowers while you are out and about and share your photo on Instagram (or Facebook, or Twitter – we’ll monitor those too) using #SCWildflowers! At the end of the contest a winner will be chosen and will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Nature Store at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, a $25 gift certificate to any Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks Park Store, 4 tickets to ride a steam train at Roaring Camp Railroads, ½ day double kayak rental through Kayak Connection and some awesome Santa Cruz swag!
