Guidelines to Participate

The Hiking Photo Challenge is designed to encourage people to visit Yolo County parks and open spaces to enjoy the health benefits of being in nature. This contest is sponsored by Teichert Foundation and administered by the Cache Creek Conservancy as part of the Yolo Healthy Parks Healthy People program.

Beginning in June the Conservancy will post a park and designated photo sites once a week for the first five weeks. Participants in the challenge will be given specific points in that park to go to and take a selfie or photo of other participants. 

The photos, along with a short description of their hike in the park, should be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line Hiking Photo Challenge. Participants must also provide a short description of their visit, including how long they stayed at the park, what they did or saw there, and how being in nature made them feel.


By participating in the challenge and sending their photos and statement, participants grant to the Cache Creek Conservancy, a not-for-profit organization, and its legal representatives and assign, the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish said photographs or statement for editorial, promotional, advertising, and any other purpose and in any manner and medium; and to alter and composite the same without restriction and without their inspection or approval.
