If you appreciate art, love wildlife, and enjoy the outdoors, a road trip to Washington, N.C., should be on your itinerary this weekend.  Along the scenic waterfront of this small Inner Banks town is where the 17th Annual East Carolina Wildlife Arts Festival and North Carolina Decoy Carving Championships gets under way, starting Friday at 9 a.m. 

Stop by the Washington Civic Center Friday night to see the unveiling of the portrait that will become the 2012 North Carolina Waterfowl Conservation Stamp and Print, also known as the North Carolina duck stamp.

This is the first year that the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is offering the print and stamp at a special price of $120 — that’s $25 off the normal price. We’ll have a booth set up in the Civic Center on the stage and will take payments for advance purchases — credit card, personal checks and cash — the entire weekend. The print and stamp will be available on July 1.

Commission personnel also will be selling subscriptions...
