Dabney S. Lancaster Community
Clifton Forge, Virginia
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.
