Store Gallery for November 2022: Ridgefield Wildlife Contest Winners
Located just north of Vancouver, Washington, Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is a unique retreat to nature nestled between the Columbia River and the town of Ridgefield.
Every year we do a photo contest with the refuge, and we're thrilled to share the 2022 Winners! Thank you to the hundreds of people who entered the contest, and congrats to the winners.
