Fourteen photos will be featured in Beaufort County’s 2016 Land Preservation Calendar—Ripple Effects: Wetlands and Waterways, Creeks and Critters. The calendar is designed to promote the County’s Rural and Critical Land Preservation Program, which has conserved more than 22,000 acres of properties throughout the County since 2000. Scott Quarforth took two winning shots, including the cover, Winding Marsh Creek. Other contestants with winning photos include:

Fran Baer – Snowy at Sunrise and Yellow-Crowned Night Heron Foraging

Vivian Bikulege – Atlantic Ripples

Sandy Dimke – Marsh Ripples

Joan Eckhardt – Snails on Spartina

Gregg Hunt – A Wetland Sunrise and Green Canal 

Dorothy Mosior – Lowcountry Rhythm

Jeannine Rowe – Driftwood

“We are grateful to all who participated in our eleventh photo contest for this calendar and thank them for taking the time and energy to share their talents with us,” said Beaufort County Administrator Gary Kubic. “The Beaufort County calendar is simply the best calendar which supports good environmental practices and land preservation.”

The calendar will be available in late November and sell for $15 at the County’s Administration in Beaufort and at various locations throughout the County.
