BURRILLVILLE – Photos of readers’ “favorite places,” in Burrillville continued to come in this week, with the five best set to be printed for inclusion in a time capsule that will be buried in conjunction with the town’s Earth Day celebration.

NRI NOW extended the deadline for the competition by one week last Friday, providing extra time for those who want to participate. To be included in the competition, pictures must now be submitted by midnight on Friday, March 27.

The contest, put on by the Burrillville Earth Day Committee, gives readers a chance to send in a picture of their favorite place in town, with the hope to show those who dig up the time capsule in 50 years how the town looked in 2020.

Readers are invited to submit up to three photos by emailing sandy@nrinow.news or via the NRI NOW Facebook page. Photos must include your name and the location where the picture was taken. They can also include a sentence or two on why you love the place and/or, how you think it might look in 50 years.

Once all of the pictures are published, readers will have the chance to pick the winners.

Read more details on the contest here.

Below is the fourth set of submissions. Additional photos can be found here, here and here.

The first photo is a Box Turtle and Spotted Turtle.
The second photo is a Wood Turtle.
All three turtles are protected in the state of RI. Burrillville has a wide array of threatened and protected animals. All three were found and photographed near Big Round Top on Round Top Road in Harrisville.

The Waterfall in the Harrisville section of Burrillville is very well known and while it is beautiful any season, its the fall that is my favorite. The flowing water and the color of the trees always makes a wonderful photo. I can not imagine this area changing but only time will tell.
