2016 Exhibits (“Top 25”)
TVC has secured exhibit space at various locations in 2017. The “Top 25” photos will be exhibited at these venues depending on space availability. We are proud that several of our prior years’ Freeze Frame! “Top 25” artists have sold their exhibited photos and received much press for their work.
Anyone interested in purchasing a photo from our traveling exhibit will be referred to the individual photographer to make purchase arrangements. TVC does not collect commissions on any sale, but reserves usage rights to utilize photos in PR and marketing endeavors on behalf of TVC.
Questions and inquiries about the 2015 Freeze Frame! Competition can be emailed to: email@example.com or by calling 925-449-8706.

Tri-Valley Conservancy’s job does not end once a conservation easements or land in title is acquired. TVC stewards the land to ensure the intent of the conservation easement is being met and the conservation values are continually protected.
At its simplest, land stewardship means managing property. For TVC, stewardship means annually visiting properties held under conservation easement to ensure sound practices as well as proper management, protection and enjoyment of the land.
Private Landowner land stewardship and easement monitoring
We value our local landowners who know the best way to steward the land. With their help and guidance we preserve the conservation values and resources we cherish. Each of the individual properties held under easement is required to be monitored annually for compliance with the terms of the conservation easement.
Public Land Stewardship
TVC also holds easements on public lands within our community. As such, TVC and our supporters take an active role in managing and maintaining them for resource protection and public enjoyment. In addition to the annual monitoring of these easements TVC assists by organizing teams of volunteers for clean-up efforts, trail construction and maintenance, planting, watering, habitat restoration, non-native plant removal, and other work projects.
At TVC, we help foster land stewardship by providing volunteer opportunities and events to engage the community.
