Have you been sorting through old photos and other keepsakes recently? Us, too!
John McEwen has been exploring the cache of The Lady’s-slipper publication at the Arnprior Archives and on our website. “What a wonderful treasure trove of articles about nature!” John noted recently. “How could we share this content?”
I gave it some thought.
Most of this member-contributed content is dated from 1984 to 2008 and saved in black-and-white image format. But we also have interesting field trip write-ups and photos that date from 2010 in our blog. So, we’re introducing a mashup of the two: a series of occasional blog posts featuring an early member-contributed Lady’s-slipper article along with links to related material
Our first is an article from the Spring 1985 Lady’s-slipper on The emergence of the dragonfly, followed by links to four posts relating to past field trip findings about dragonflies on nearby Morris Island.
We’ll include a link to each new post in our club newsletter as well as on our Facebook page.
