Last week's Volunteer Instructor Class program was on the Plankton Station. If you missed the program, or if you wish to review the material, just click on http://www.schoolship.org/membership/?id=861 and you will find the slides and a narration by Christine Crissman.
Next week's (2-24-09) program will cover fishes and the Fish Station.
A reminder of the reception this evening at the Watershed Center in Traverse City:

The opening reception will feature mixed media work by Glenn Wolff, a reading from Winter Walks by Jerry Dennis, and fine books by Chad Pastotnik of Deep Wood Press.

Ice cover report: The small bays within in Grand Traverse Bay remain ice covered (Northport, Omena, Bowers), but most of the ice in the West Arm has melted/blown out during the past several days of warm weather and strong winds. The last time GT Bay froze over was in 2003 and before that, 1996.

Shot in the Boat Shop earlier last week. The canoe is ready for interior sanding. The Optimist Pram in the background is ready for its bottom plywood. The uncut plywood is leaning against the wall.
