IL Conservation Releases 2nd Annual Wall Calendar
The Illinois Conservation Foundation is pleased to announce the release of its second-annual Illinois wall calendar. Advance sales are under way, with the calendar available for shipment no later than September 1. If you relied on the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ former OutdoorIllinois wall calendar for hunting, trapping and fishing season information, and for events celebrating Illinois’ great outdoors, you’ll definitely want to pick up a copy of the 2015 calendar. Proceeds from the sale of this calendar will support youth conservation education programs in Illinois.
“Our 2014 wall calendar was a tremendous hit, not only with those who enjoy being outdoors in Illinois, but those who recognize the importance of teaching the youth of Illinois about wise use and management of our natural resources,” said Eric Schmidt, Illinois Conservation Foundation Executive Director.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendar support a variety of youth education programs in Illinois, such as outreach efforts at the Torstenson Youth Conservation Education Center, and the new Torstenson Education Station, a traveling trailer equipped with hands-on equipment that teachers and youth group leaders can use to support a number of programs.
Supplies of the 2015 calendar are limited, so order calendars today for shipment by Sept. 1, 2014. The calendar is the perfect holiday gift for your outdoor friends and family, so order a supply and check a number of people off your gift-giving list early this year.
The 9-inch x 12-inch calendar contains stunning photography of Illinois and can be purchased for $12, with discounts available for multiple copies. MasterCard or VISA orders can be placed at the secure Illinois Conservation Foundation website www.ilcf.org or by phone at 217-785-2003. Checks and money orders can be mailed to Illinois Conservation Foundation, ATTN: Wall Calendar, One Natural Resources Way, Springfield, IL 62702-1271.
