The 2014 Beaufort County land preservation calendar will soon be available for $10.
Down from $15, the calendar represents a great bargain, according to Beaufort County Administrator Gary Kubic.
"We have received rave reviews on this year's calendar, and I think it's our best yet," Kubic said in a news release. "Even though the new year has begun, people will still enjoy 13 months of fantastic photography featuring the outdoor beauty of Beaufort County."
Since 2005 the county has conducted a contest to collect photos for the calendar.
This year's theme, "The Sky's the Limit," called for photos representing elements of the Beaufort County seal. Those elements include oak trees, shrimp boats, marine life, Lowcountry homes and waterways.
The calendar is available 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 at the Beaufort County Planning Department on the first floor of the county administration building, 100 Ribaut Rd., Beaufort. Calendars also are available at the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce offices in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island, the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn on Hilton Head Island, the Maye River Gallery, Calhoun Street, Bluffton, and online at the county website.
The calendar is an annual project sponsored by the Beaufort County Council to promote public education about the Rural and Critical Lands Preservation Program.
