Happy Summer

I'm going to get a final list of this years participants in the first annual SUMMER LIMNO class tomorrow from Mr. Hervela. When I get it I'll post the list here so you can see who your classmates are.

Right now I've got 4 distinct things planned, with more to follow.

A. We'll be working with the Huron Pines Conservation group on an erosion site on the Black River - probably Tuesday.
B. We'll be working with the DNR on a fish survey - probably Wed.
C. We'll tour the Oden Fish Hatchery - probably Saturday.
D. We'll canoe Thursday into Friday, camping overnight and hear from a wildlife biologist and historian.
