The grand prize is a Honda Insight Hybrid, and secondary prizes include five $500 gift cards from REI. Go to nature.org/naturaltreasuresohio or facebook.com/ohionatureconservancy and find one or more of 30 places around the state that have been identified as Natural Treasures of Ohio. To enter, take a photo of yourself with the designated landmark at a site and upload it to the website. You get a chance to win for each site you visit ‘“ up to 30 chances. In addition to entering the sweepstakes, participants are encouraged to explore the properties through a series of fun, family-friendly activities which can also be found online. Activities range from an adventurous game of “I Spy” in the Windows of Wildlife viewing area at Toledo’s Side Cut Metropark to a leisurely stroll through Cincinnati’s Mount Airy Forest arboretum.
