We all depend on the land to live. The land affects where we live and how we live. Even though we walk on it every day, sometimes we forget it’s even there and can take the land for granted.

How do you connect with the land? Do you play on it? Make your living from it? Explore it? Just look at it? Share your connection to the land with us.

Take a few minutes to shoot a quick video – no more than 2:00 minutes – of how you connect with the land and how that makes your life better. You could win $500, $1,000 or $2,000 – plus the chance to designate the land trust of your choice to receive $10,000!
