Hi gang,

Got some progress (read: design very near completion) on the Corcoran
Education Grant award Jeffro and I recieved from the membership last year
(thanks again!). I'm going to change some of the images, and put in the new
NANFA logo, have Jeff actually look over the right pane lol. I have three
events where this is will be used this weekend, so I had to get it to a
point of printing (sorry Jeff :). We also have to figure out how to frame
this thing so it folds up, but that's small beans, a nice afternoon in the
garage kind of thing. Anyway...

Perhaps the nicest thing is this can easily be made custom to anywhere by
switching out a couple pictures, some text. This is specific to the Maumee,
but you just <insert watershed> and that's that. The fish are widely
distributed, but you can always switch out pics for something local or of
endemic importance.

I talked my department into paying the costs of printing (so we can extend
the reach of the grant and make more!), but it would probably be a good idea
for me to run this over to Kinkos and find out what they would charge for
print and lamination, so if someone else wanted to use this, they'd know
what the financial constraints were.

As well, I threw in a pic of the mussel board we did on another small grant:

Man, it feels good to actually see some things getting to completion. Now
to go make a Power Point for the native plant landscapers next Tuesday...
And maybe work on my thesis for once lol.
