Photos sought for 2015 West Virginia wildflower calendar


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Wildflower photos are being sought for West Virginia's next "Roadsides in Bloom" calendar.

The state departments of Environmental Protection and Transportation are sponsoring the 12th annual West Virginia Operation Wildflower calendar photo contest.

Judges will select 12 photos to represent the months of the year, and a grand prize winner's photo will be displayed on the 2015 calendar cover.

Entries are limited to three per person and the deadline is Oct. 1. Flowers in the photos must be growing along a West Virginia road, which also must be prominently visible.

The state's Operation Wildflower beautification program includes more than 250 acres of wildflowers along roadways. It's a joint effort between the DEP and the Division of Highways.

For more information on the calendar, contact the Adopt-A-Highway Program at (800) 322-5530.
