The Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams (KAWS) & Scott Bean Photography are partnering to offer you high quality photographs of our Kansas natural heritage in a school-year calendar format. Healthy places, healthy people and healthy wildlife are interconnected, and all are part of our natural heritage here in Kansas.
In exchange for your generous support of KAWS and this calendar, we are giving you a chance to win a $500 on-line or in-store shopping spree every other week of the year and two $1500 grand prize shopping sprees when you register your calendar ticket in our drawing.
Drawing winners can select from one of following nine outdoor recreation suppliers for their shopping sprees: Backwoods, Bass Pro Shops, Big Poppi Bicycle Company, Cabelas, Gander Mountain, Patagonia, Pathfinder, Recreation Equipment Inc. (REI), and Sunflower Outdoor & Bike.
Twenty-four $500 shopping sprees will be awarded to the winning calendars. Two grand prize $1500 shopping sprees will be awarded to the winning calendars selected the weeks of Christmas 2015 and Independence Day 2016. Each calendar donation enters you in a drawing for a shopping spree every other week of the year from August 2015 through July 2016.
We are now give away the calendars for free, but if you like the calendar, we are requesting a $6 donation for each calendar to costs or a $20 donation to enter the raffle drawings! Proceeds will support education and coordination of conservation projects throughout Kansas and other social fundraising efforts.

About the Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams (KAWS): KAWS has a mission to protect, restore and celebrate the natural heritage of Kansas—its streams, wetlands, riparian areas, prairies and its wildlife. They are all historical parts of our natural landscape and communities and provide us vast beauty as well as a range of ecosystem goods and services which are the basis of life here in the Great Plains. KAWS is a not-for-profit educational charity which began in 1996, but has involved folks caring about conservation spanning many generations of our state’s history. We are a melting pot of Kansas conservation and community interests always striving to partner and find ways to conserve the natural places we love and call home. KAWS in cooperation with partners, friends, and communities have conserved and restored many miles of streams and riparian areas and tens of thousands of acres of wetlands, prairies and wildlife habitat over the years. Please join us in support of these efforts and help us in celebration of our Kansas natural heritage.
About Scott Bean: Growing up in Kansas, I had a lot of opportunities to spend time outside, usually hunting or fishing. I learned to really love the outdoors. For me, my first forays into photography were an excuse to be outside and that “excuse” is still a major driving force for me to be behind the camera. I like being outside and being out away from it all. I’d like to be able to say something deeper than that about why I choose to make photographs, but “I like to” is the most honest thing I can come up with.
I want my photography to connect me to the landscape around me. I want photography to drive me to go outside and to really be there when I’m outside. Having a camera with me makes me see the world much differently than in my pre-camera days. It makes me be more aware of the world around me and helps me to be more fully present.
I’ve always been inspired by photographers who could make me feel like I was there or wanted to be there in their photograph. That’s something I aspire to achieve with my work. I want people to experience what I experienced when I clicked the shutter. I want my photographs to bring joy to people that see them—in the memory of a place, the excitement of seeing something new or just to capture the sheer beauty that exists in the world around us.
