Giants of Nova Scotia - Calendar Project update

A big shout out to everyone that helped out with the Giants of Nova Scotia 2019 calendar project.

All 1,000 calendars found a home and a little over $3,500 was raised for the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute for the on-going fight against invasive species like Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.

And tucked underneath the beautiful photos of Nova Scotia's trees and forest was the message -- acquire your firewood where you burn it.

Giants of Nova Scotia - celebrate beauty + HWA message

Giants of Nova Scotia is a project started in February 2018 to raise the awareness of HWA by celebrating the beauty of Nova Scotia's trees and forests with a gentle message about how individuals can help to keep it that way.

The plan is to create a 2019 calendar from photos submitted in a contest with all proceeds going to the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute to help them with their HWA efforts.

The photo contest closes : September 14, 2018

The calendar will be available for sale : approximately October 31, 2018

As the project has evolved, support from the local Instagram community has meant that online media has become an important tool for raising awareness.
