Remember the contest!
Enter your guess on the contest post please.
I was at Chewonki today with a modified invasive plant/native plant display (posters) for the Maine Environmental Education Association annual meeting. Not the crowds we see at the flower shows and fairs, but a different audience (the regular display is at the Maine Home and Garden Show in Gorham).
Here are some cool things I saw…
It’s the life-sized lower jaw of this,
a northern fin whale.
But some green showing in open places,
(that’s broom moss aka Dicranum scoparium in case you wanted to know…)
Look what I saw in the worm bin at the Connecticut Valley Biological Supply table,
Pill bugs (the bigger darker ones) and sow bugs… and here I thought they were different names for the same critter. They had some great stuff for teachers, but the thing that caught my eye was the MiScope… a little lighted box that connects to your pc, and you can see things on your screen magnified 40x-140x. The software can take still images and videos. WAY COOL.
I spun up the remainder of the bfl… thin! Pics soon, after I spin up the rest of the sample fibers!
There’s a date for the 2009 Fiber Frolic!
