Groups, sell N.H. wildlife calendars

CONCORD — If you need a fall fundraiser for your school, club or community group, selling the 2014 New Hampshire Fish and Wildlife calendar is a great way to go. This fundraiser offers local groups a great profit margin — your organization makes $4.95 on each calendar sold. There’s no risk for you, because calendars are pre-sold.

Last year, more than 50 local groups took part in the Fish and Game calendar fundraiser. Many schools, Scout troops, fish and game clubs, and other organizations took part. The theme of this year’s calendar is “Learn WILD” — connecting teachers, students and learners of all ages to the wild world.

The award-winning New Hampshire Fish and Wildlife Calendar retails for $9.95.

The calendar is a great New Hampshire product that inspires everyone to get connected to the great outdoors. Each month features fascinating professional photographs of native wildlife, from a snowy white ermine to a magnificent fall moose, a lacy dragonfly and a mallard taking flight. A mama bear and cub grace the cover. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy another unique feature — wildlife watching tips, plus handy N.H. hunting, fishing and snowmobile season dates.
