An Unusual End to Governor's School

In 28 years, it's never ended "piece-meal" like this year. Participants are coming to DSLCC as they can to mount their leaf collection and present their Ecothings.

Mounting pressed leaves for an herbarium collection.


A selection of exemplary Ecothings

Signature fauna from around the world

A very large hellgrammite -- along with a life-cycle poster

A set of sketches of owls found in Virginia -- 7 in all. Bathed in the light of the full mooon.

A diorama of our Laurel Fork campsite made entirely from natural materials. Note the tent made of leaves.

Our second-year student made a collection of invertebrates.

"Tree cookies" from a Virginia Pine, also part of the second-year program. Note how sanding enhances the rings.

Thanks for a wonderful (& unusual) Governor's School!
