In New Hampshire, we have the rare opportunity to see karner blues, one of the country's most endangered butterflies. Below are a few pics from a recent visit.

After a brief hiatus, we're back and getting busy. Today we're making buoys for marking aquatic invasive species (AIS). These bright yellow or red floating markers will be used during AIS surveys as well as for marking harvested plants. Buoys let boaters know to steer clear until we give the "all clear!"
