Sales of 2015 West Virginia Wildlife Calendar begin, painting of 2 bucks in snow on cover


SOUTH CHARLESTON, West Virginia — A painting of two bucks in the snow is featured on the cover of the 2015 West Virginia Wildlife Calendar.

The calendar also has paintings of a yellow perch, a pair of red-bellied woodpeckers and other wildlife.

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says all of the calendar's paintings were done by West Virginia artists. A brief description of the animal and the artist's contact information accompanies each painting.

The calendar also includes several articles, including tips on taking a child fishing.

The calendar is available for sale for $10 at DNR district offices, card stores, convenience stores and drug stores across the state.

Sales proceeds are used to help fund the DNR Wildlife Diversity Program's projects, such as monitoring bird populations.
