SPECIAL TO THE PACKET AND GAZETTE — Submitted photo

The 2014 Beaufort County land preservation calendar, which displays a cover shot of a sunrise on the beach at Hunting Island State Park, is on sale at various locations across the county.

The 14-month calendar comprises several stunning outdoor photographs taken throughout Beaufort County, according to a news release. This year, the pictures, gathered through an annual contest, depict subjects shown within the county seal, including oak trees, shrimp boats, marine life, Lowcountry homes and waterways. The calendar also includes maps and information about the history, traditions and natural amenities of Beaufort County.

“Anyone who appreciates the outdoor beauty of our special part of the world will want one of these calendars," county administrator Gary Kubic said in the release. "The photographers who contributed their work are exceptional. The calendars also make excellent gifts and can be enjoyed every day for the next 14-months.”

The calendar is an annual project sponsored by Beaufort County Council to further public education regarding the Rural and Critical Lands Preservation Program, which has conserved more than 22,000 acres of properties throughout the County since 2000, the release states. It is available for $15 at the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce gift shop inside The Arsenal on Craven Street; the Beaufort Bookstore; the Beaufort Downtown Marina; Fordham Market on Beaufort's Bay Street; and the Beaufort County Planning Department on the first floor of the county administration building, 100 Ribaut Road, Beaufort.
