One product of this collaboration was a calendar featuring pencil drawing and scratchboard artwork by elementary, middle and high schools students featuring the flora and fauna of a local river ecosystem. The older and younger students worked together outdoors on writing and artwork, and paired to create the layout for calendar pages. This calendar was the fifth such collaboration; over the years hundreds of students have been involved in the program.

The calendars were sold to raise funds for fieldwork at the schools and to fund future collaboration on Art Share projects.
