Jim Fregonara, a biologist with The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, describes this year's cover. "This was painted by an artist that lives in South Dakota. He's a nationally known artist that has a few paintings selected for this year's calendar. A pair of wood ducks for the cover and a cardinal for a winter month. He is asking between twelve and fourteen thousand dollars for this painting."
That's not the only high quality art you'll find in the wildlife calendar, it's loaded with all kinds of cool pictures, but as always, that's not the only quality stuff you'll get inside.
"This is our 27th year, most of the artists are from WV, but we are soliciting art work from all over the country, we're trying to get the word out. We have some feature articles on how to age a fish, some of our fresh water mussel work, hunting and fishing regulations, daily facts you can learn, all kinds of wildlife, sun rise, sun set times, it's a real good calendar." says Fregonara.
And it's real cheap...only ten bucks will get you one of these for your wall, or will be a real good reminder of home for folks who've left the state and won't be home in time for Christmas.
