Submit a ‘Photo of the Day’ on Instagram

The Blue Hills Reservation boasts some of our community’s most beautiful views of Boston and the surrounding area, with unique wildlife and plants to discover during your visit.

Now that summer is in full-swing, we invite you to take your favorite photos during your time at the Blue Hills and submit them by tagging us on Instagram @friendsofthebluehills or using the hashtag #lovebluehills.   

We’ll select the top three for the week and spotlight them individually as the Photo of the Day on Instagram for everyone to enjoy.

If your photo is chosen, we’ll tag your Instagram account in the post to help bring more eyes to your other photos as well! As an added incentive, if you submit a photo by August 16 at 1pm, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift certificate to L.L.Bean.

So keep snapping photos of anything and everything Blue Hills, send em’ over, and you could be featured!  Questions?  Email:

Not on Instagram?  No problem!  Everyone can submit a photo to the Seasons of the Blue Hills Photo Contest!
