Do you have good-quality photos taken in Birch Bay? BBWARM and the Birch Bay Chamber are looking for photos to use in our community outreach materials.  Winners will each receive a prize pack with offerings from local Birch Bay businesses. We will choose one winner for each of the following categories:

  • Scenery (e.g. Birch Bay at sunset)
  • Events & Activities (e.g. flying kites at the kite festival, digging clams with your family)
  • Local Businesses (e.g. ice cream at The C Shop)
  • Stewardship (e.g. cleaning the beach, planting native landscaping at home)
  • Wildlife (e.g. marine life during low tide)
