POINT REYES, CALIFORNIA - On September 13, 1962, President Kennedy signed the Point Reyes National Seashore Authorization Act, realizing the dream of a national seashore at Point Reyes. 

To commemorate our 50th anniversary, Point Reyes National Seashore is sponsoring a photo contest. From the 308th step at the historic lighthouse, to high up on Mt. Vision's bishop pine covered ridge, share your favorite memories of this natural sanctuary. Park visitors are invited to submit their photos in three categories: flora and fauna; landscapes; and people in the seashore. 

The competition is open to all park visitors. Submissions will be accepted August 1, 2012, through August 27, 2012. First, second, and third place winners in each category will be announced in September to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the park.
