These volunteers receive special training and ongoing support to produce essays whose only aim is connecting readers to the natural world in some meaningful way.

Illustrated by original artwork, the calendar also offers daily tips and tidbits to expand your awareness and help you take delight in the passing seasons. Order early. We expect to sell out fast. The calendars are $7.95 each and you can order online at http://extension.unh.edu/News/NHOC2008.html
