Calendar highlights coastal resources
9:43 a.m., Nov. 14, 2007--Those who want to get a jump on their holiday gift shopping ought to check out the 2008 desk calendar from UD's College of Marine and Earth Studies.

The calendar is presented in a slim plastic case--similar in size to a CD case--that opens to form a display stand for the 12 monthly calendar cards inside. The design also makes it convenient to “snap it shut” and carry it with you.

Each monthly card features a stunning photo of a Delaware coastal treasure such as a colorful marsh in autumn, a sailboat at sunset and Delaware Bay from space. Information related to each photo is noted on the back of the card, where important monthly dates and interesting facts also are listed.

Cost is $6, plus $1.50 for shipping and handling. Pay by check, cash, money order or credit card. Order by calling the Marine Public Education Office at (302) 831-8083.
