Outdoor enthusiasts who are photographers have six more weeks to create and enter their best Indiana wetlands photos for the 2008 Indiana Wetlands Calendar produced by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

The deadline is Sept. 14 for the photo contest, which promotes the protection and preservation of Indiana wetlands.

According to IDEM officials, “Wetlands filter pollutants from our groundwater supply, absorb and reduce damage caused by flood waters, and provide habitat for diverse species. Humans benefit most from healthy wetlands. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management encourages preservation and protection of wetlands.”

Contest entry information is listed at http://www.in.gov/idem/photocontest/. Winning photographs will be printed in the calendar, which will be published later in 2007.
