Fun times

This past weekend was “Christmas in July” at Put-in-Bay, an annual event celebrated every late July on the island. Friday night a large Santa made a short visit to Gibraltar Island. Santa was pulled by a large yacht decorated with Christmas lights and playing Christmas music. Saturday evening a few of us took a break from our busy schedule to partake in the festivities in town. Good times were had by all!

There's more??

Yep! I just got done with my Local Flora for Teachers course at Stone Lab. I have lots of stuff to post so keep checking back. I have some preview pictures posted now. Also, being the busy wee student that I am, I'll be back up there in justa few days for the Aquatic and Wetland Flora class so you'll be hearing a lot more from me.

In the mean time here's a picture of my Local Flora class:

Field Ecology - EEOB 513

So my week in Field Ecology in June was great! And I'm looking forward to Stream Ecology starting this weekend. Here's the link to the Field Ecology course:

It's nice to be a teacher and have time during the summer to do this kind of stuff!

I loved seeing all the water snakes on the islands... these two were sunning themselves on Kelley's Island.

Next up: EEOB 694!

Hey there, it's me, OSU Nature Gal again! I'm gearing up for my next class, Local Flora for Teachers at Stone Lab. I'm really looking forward to it since plants are my guilty pleasure and I hope to be able to continue focusing on them throughout my education. Keep checking in and I'll let you know how it's going!
