OHHS wins Wear Pink/Give Red trophy

“The 2013 West Virginia Wildlife Calendar is now available for everyone to enjoy,” according to Curtis I. Taylor, chief of the Wildlife Resources Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

The cover of this award-winning wall calendar features an outstanding painting of a male and female goldfinch painted by West Virginia artist Rhea Knight. This highly detailed work of art is only one of the 12 beautiful paintings in this year’s calendar. A variety of wildlife is depicted including a black bear and her cubs, a family of squirrels, a swallowtail butterfly, a musky and ruffed grouse. Two months feature white-tailed deer and December highlights the snowy owl, a species which makes an appearance in West Virginia every few years. Paintings of cottontail rabbits, a hooded merganser and a praying mantis round out the year.

Accompanying each painting is a brief description of the featured animal and the artist’s contact information. Feature articles include the importance of white-tailed deer in West Virginia, DNR’s trout stream restoration program and the improving fisheries in Cheat Lake. The calendar also contains the 2013 hunting and fishing license fees.

“The calendar is full of interesting daily facts, best fishing days and times, and monthly tips to help you fully enjoy the outdoors,” Taylor said. “Its $10 price tag makes it a terrific bargain and a great holiday gift.”

The 2013 West Virginia Wildlife Calendar is available at DNR district offices, department stores, newsstands, convenience marts and food stores throughout the state or through the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, P.O. Box 67, Elkins, WV 26241; phone:  304-637-0245. A list of vendors selling the calendars is available online at www.wvdnr.gov/Wildlife/WildlifeCalendar.shtm. If buying through the mail, make checks payable to WVDNR in the amount of $15.50 for each calendar, which includes shipping and handling (West Virginia residents add $.60 tax for each calendar; VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted).

Organizations, clubs and civic groups can profit by selling the calendar as part of their fund-raising activities. Interested organizations should contact the DNR at the above address for more information.

“The 2012 calendar won a Gold Award in an annual contest sponsored by the Calendar Marketing Association,” Taylor noted. The award was in the most informative wall calendar, retail division.
