Share with Us and Our Readers

We love to hear from kids across New York about how they spend time exploring outdoors and what they're doing to help the environment. Send us an email and tell us what you think. You can attach digital photos or scanned images of your original artwork too. We may post your photo or artwork on out website! In addition to photos and artwork you may submit poems, short stories and other items which may be shared on our Reader's Gallery page.

Guidelines for submitting photos, original artwork and other materials:

  • Make sure that the photos are sharp and not blurry.
  • If people are in the photo, a Model Release Form must be completed and mailed or faxed to us. We will not use images of any person under the age of 18 without a Model Consent Form signed by his/her parent or legal guardian.
  • Digital photos must be taken at the highest resolution possible for us to use them in the print version of Conservationist for Kids. Lower resolution can only be used on our web site. Digital images my be sent my email or burned onto a CD and mailed. If you are unable to scan your original print or artwork you may send us the originals and we will scan it and return the original to you.
  • You may email your submission to use, or send it in the mail to:
