2013 Photo Contest Winning Images Selected
A great eye for composition has earned Merry Muller of Gardnerville both first place awards in the 2013 Eagles & Agriculture Photo Contest. Her ‘Calf and Eagle Playing’ image was selected by the Eagles and Agriculture Steering Committee as the best Eagle image and her ‘Newborn Calf’ image was selected as the best in the Agriculture/Wildlife category. Ms. Muller will receive
$ 125 for each of her category wins.
The contest, which accepts photographs taken in Carson Valley any time between the end of the previous year’s event and the submission deadline, received over 40 entries this year. Eagles & Agriculture is a three day celebration of wildlife and the ranching industry in Carson Valley, held in February each year. Dates for the 2014 event have
been set for February 21st to 23rd.
2013 Eagles & Agriculture Event Soars
The 2013 Eagles & Agriculture event was a huge success. Over 400 participants experienced the interaction between our ranches and wildlife that makes Carson Valley remarkable.
Our thanks to all who participated, from the Chamber staff and Ambassadors to the Steering Committee, the volunteers, our birders and BSers, the falconers and the superb banquet staff at Carson Valley Inn.
A special thank you to the participating ranches. Without your willingness to open your gates and share your story and your land, this doesn't happen.
We'll do it again next February!
