Smile. You could have your digital photos on the new Flickr group called, “Let’s Go Outside.”
Hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the “Let’s Go Outside” [http://www.flickr.com/groups/1385215@N24] group allows Flickr users to upload images of themselves, their family and friends at national wildlife refuges and other great outdoor spots. You can use Flickr’s map function to identify where your photos were taken and see the places where group members explore nature.
You can also describe where the image was taken and your experiences in nature. You can even upload images from your cell phone or chat on the Flickr discussion board about members’ favorite places to go.
The Service’s “Let’s Go Outside” initiative encourages people to reconnect with nature. To learn about activities in nature go to the Service’s special events calendar online at http://www.fws.gov/refuges/SpecialEvents/FWS_SpecialEvents_Search.cfm, or the Let’s Go Outside Web site, http://www.fws.gov/letsgooutside/.
