Giants of Nova Scotia 2019 calendar release - details received by email today. My image "Whisper" is featured for the month of February 2019.
Nova Scotia has so many outstanding trees and forests. We're very pleased to be able to show you 12 in our 2019 Giants of Nova Scotia calendar.
Our photo contest attracted just over 300 entries that -- with a great deal of difficulty -- we were able to whittle down to the images before you.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed and congratulations to the winners. It is fair to say that the final collection will be a joy to look at all next year.
Calendars are now on sale with deliveries starting in late October. They can be purchased online, via e-transfer or in person at Farmer's Market throughout Nova Scotia.
Details are at our website : www.giantsofnovascotia.com
Giants of Nova Scotia is a project that celebrates our provincial trees and forests while raising awareness about recently discovered invasive species. All proceeds will be donated to the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute to carry on the fight.

About this project (taken from the Giants of Nova Scotia website):
Nova Scotia has some amazing trees and forested land. But there's some invasive species moving in that could cause serious problems.What to do? Using the adage "You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar" I came up with the idea for a 2019 calendar that featured outstanding tree and forest photos from across Nova Scotia. As part of the calendar, there would be a gentle message about how you could help prevent the spread of invasive pests. So your children and grandchildren can enjoy the beauty you are looking at every month. The generous folk at Awesome South Shore liked my idea and gave me $1000 to help bring it to life. Here's the plan...
- Photo contest - Complete
- Calendars For Sale - Available NOW!
- All proceeds are donated to the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute for work to prevent the spread of invasive pests in our forests
