Aug 4, 2014 - From staff reportsOrganizers of the annual Sinks Canyon State Park raffle are encouraging nature enthusiasts to buy tickets for the chance to win one of three full framed and matted photographs.
"People can support Sinks Canyon in many ways, but we always need financial support, especially to do display work," park superintendent Darrel Trembly said. "This way people can support us and have a chance to win a great picture."
The three images by award-winning Lander photographers Scott Copeland and Gene Schmidt are being raffled to raise money for new displays in the park's visitor center.
Schmidt donated a photo of a bright blue mountain bluebird and a red and cream-colored Cassin's finch. Copeland donated the image of a soaring golden eagle flying through snow in the canyon.
Tickets are available at the visitor center.
Raffle tickets are $2 each or $10 for six. The drawing will be on Labor Day.
The visitor center is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
For more information, call the park at 332-3077.
