Great Gift for the Holidays Now Available
November 19, 2008
Are you looking for a holiday gift that showcases the natural beauty of New Hampshire?
Cooperative Extension’s 2009 NH Outside calendar is now available. The calendar contains excerpts from published NH Outside columns, illustrated with original artwork by volunteer artists and spiced with daily tips and tidbits to help increase awareness of the natural world.
Subtitled “connecting you with the wisdom and wonder of the natural world,” the calendar itself reflects the purpose of our collaborative writing project: to give our many natural resources volunteers who love to write another way to share the humor, insight, and wonder they've found in the world outside their doorways.
We recruit people with a passion for the natural world and offer training, professional editing, and ongoing support in exchange for their written work. Most of their essays reflect on a private experience or encounter with the world just outside their doorways.
The only aim of our project: to connect readers to nature in some concrete, meaningful way. Every week we distribute a new essay to print media statewide and publish it to our NH Outside Web page.
Last year's calendar won a first-place award from the Association for Communication Excellence (ACE), an international association of communicators and information technologists. At $8.95 each ($7.95 for 10 or more calendars,) we expect the calendars to disappear quickly.
