CountyCalendarThe scenic 2014 Beaufort County land preservation calendar, which displays a spectacular cover shot of a sunrise on the beach at Hunting Island State Park, is on sale at various locations both north and south of the Broad River.

The 14-month calendar is comprised of several stunning outdoor photographs taken throughout Beaufort County. The pictures, generated 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.

Gary Kubic, Beaufort County Administrator, said the photographs are inspiring. “Anyone who appreciates the outdoor beauty of our special part of the world will want one of these calendars. 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.

It is available for $15 at the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce gift shop inside the Arsenal on Craven Street; the Beaufort Bookstore; the Downtown Beaufort Marina; Fordham Market, Bay Street, Beaufort; and the Beaufort County Planning Department on the first floor of the County Administration Building, 100 Ribaut Road, Beaufort.
