Dubuque County Conservation was thrilled to partner with Julien’s Journal on the Moments in Nature Photography Contest this year. Previously known as the “Capture Dubuque” photo contest, it was started to encourage people to get out and explore Dubuque County parks and recreation areas. Last held in 2010, we were happy to get the chance to revive it. This year’s enthusiastic response to the contest was a surprise, with 93 photo entries in seven different categories. Judges were astounded with the amount of talent in our Dubuque community, as well as the beautiful moments captured.
