[September 16, 2013]  McLEAN -- Sugar Grove Nature Center is calling for entries to their fourth annual Nature Photography Contest. From a close-up of a tiny insect to the vast expanse of a landscape, every year the center is astounded by guests' abilities to capture the natural beauty of Funks Grove and its surrounding areas by camera.

Any photos taken in McLean and the surrounding counties between Jan. 1, 2012, and Sept. 27, 2013, are eligible for submission. The photos with completed forms and entry fee must be delivered to Sugar Grove Nature Center in person or by mail by Sept. 27.

Several categories will be judged in the adult division, and there will be a special division for youth, 13 years old and under.

Complete contest rules and entry forms are available at, by calling 309-874-2174 or emailing

All winning photographs will be displayed on the Sugar Grove Nature Center website. Winning photographs will also be on display during the Sugar Grove Autumn Celebration on Oct. 19.
