Please allow up to two weeks for your Weatherguide calendar(s) to arrive after ordering online. During the busy holiday shipping season, it may take up to three weeks.

Sorry, our order fulfillment process does not allow for tracking at this time. If you do not receive your order after three weeks, please email freshwater@freshwater.org, and we will be happy to assist. Your orders will arrive via USPS or SpeeDee Delivery.

Lightweight bubble mailers are the best option we have found so far to protect Weatherguide calendars in transit while keeping shipping costs under control. Please know that we make every effort to ensure sustainable production of the Weatherguide, including the use of Forest Resource Council certified paper from responsible sources. We are exploring cost-effective options for recyclable mailers and hope to incorporate this and other improvements in the future. Thank you for your patience and feedback as we continue to refine our process.

Unfortunately, we can only ship within the United States at this time.

Well, sort of. The weather records, phenology and astronomical information in the Weatherguide are specific to Minnesota. But many of the natural phenomena and photographs portray subjects that can be found throughout the Upper Midwest and beyond. We know plenty of long-time Weatherguide enthusiasts who send the calendar as gifts to friends and family who live in other parts of the country and even overseas!

The Weatherguide is a calendar and almanac in one with an incredible amount of information from experts in the fields of meteorology, astronomy, phenology and indigenous culture. Plus, the funds raised from Weatherguide sales go to support Freshwater, a nonprofit organization dedicated to water conservation, research, policy and education. That’s how your Weatherguide purchase helps water!
