Outdoor Photo Exhibit Featured at Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center

ATHENS, Texas — Some of the best outdoor photographs taken during the last year will go on display Oct. 1 at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center.

The photos were all winners in the 2004 Outdoor Writers Association of America/Nikon photography contest. The exhibit includes 16 color and 16 black-and-white photos divided into five categories: scenic, flora, fauna, people and action. Subjects include geese, bugling elk, grouse, snakes, bullfrogs, wildflowers, sled dogs, mountains and anglers in action.

The photos were selected by a panel of experts from among hundreds entered in the annual contest. Copies of the photographs may be obtained through OWAA and ordering information will be posted at the exhibit.

Nikon, Inc., funds the annual contest and traveling exhibit, which will be shown at libraries, art galleries, outdoor expos, museums and other venues nationwide. The exhibit will be at TFFC through Nov. 10.

The Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center is located near Athens, 75 miles southeast of Dallas. The photo exhibit may be viewed during the following hours: Tuesday through Saturday 9a .m. — 4p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m. Admission to the center includes the photo exhibit and dive show at 11 a.m. weekdays, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays; fishing in the stocked 1.5-acre casting pond; tram tours of the hatchery and access to the .8-mile wetlands trail.
