Giants of Nova Scotia - celebrate beauty + HWA message

Giants of Nova Scotia is a project started in February 2018 to raise the awareness of HWA by celebrating the beauty of Nova Scotia's trees and forests with a gentle message about how individuals can help to keep it that way.

The plan is to create a 2019 calendar from photos submitted in a contest with all proceeds going to the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute to help them with their HWA efforts.

The photo contest closes : September 14, 2018

The calendar will be available for sale : approximately October 31, 2018

As the project has evolved, support from the local Instagram community has meant that online media has become an important tool for raising awareness.
