Smucker’s Make a Natural Difference Campaign

Nature Collage

Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter and the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) are teaming up to encourage people to go outside this summer and enjoy your local parks! To celebrate this partnership Smucker’s is launching the Make a Natural Difference Photo Promotion where nature fans can submit photos of their visits to National Parks for a chance to win a Sony DSLR camera, Shutterfly gift cards, and more! As a participant in the “Make a Natural Difference” campaign, you will help in our efforts, along with the NPCA and Smucker’s to spread the word about protecting and enhancing America’s National Parks!

How Can You Make A Difference & WIN!


Making a difference is easy. When I am out running trails at our local parks, I usually bring along a small grocery bag and pick up trash along the way! We would like to invite you to make a natural difference too! Just visit Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter to learn how to preserve parks for future generations! If you are in shape or trying to get in shape the Smucker’s Make a Natural Difference Campaign is fun for everyone. Whether you are going on a leisurely stroll in the park or running full speed, when you bring along a camera, you never know just what you might find!

Just for sharing your nature photo you could win the GRAND PRIZE:

  • A Sony SLR Camera
  • An 18-35 mm lens
  • A camera case
  • A Shutterfly gift card
  • 1 jar of Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 jar of Adam’s Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 jar of Laura Scudder’s Natural Peanut Butter

If you already do photos when you are outdoors enjoying nature, why not share them with Smucker’s?  Even if you don’t win the Grand Prize you could be on of 50 to win one of the 1st Place prizes which include 1 $50 Shutterfly Gift Card & three Jars of Natural Peanut Butter!  But wait, that’s not all…
