Did you know it takes longer for fishing wire to decompose than an aluminum can?

Can you name some of the fish that are part of Virginia’s Saltwater Game Fish Tagging Program?

These are just some of the things students who participated in 2011 Urbanna Oyster Festival Marine Science Legacy Day heard about at the VIMS booth, led by members of Virginia Sea Grant’s Marine Extension Program at VIMS. After talking to students about marine debris and the Game Fish Tagging Program, Anne Smith (Clean Marina Specialist) and Susanna Musick (Marine Recreation Specialist) led students in a fishing game. Students would use a rod and reel to pull in either a fish or a type of marine debris. Then they’d take their catch over to a table to look up information about it.

The Urbanna Oyster Festival Marine Science Legacy Day brings hundreds of elementary school students to Urbanna, VA to learn about science, conservation, and issues in the Chesapeake Bay.

Queen Anne Porch, 1912

I posted another photo of this Boydton, Virginia home (February 8, 2010), but I was too far off to capture the essence of the house. One commenter stated that the house is predominately Queen Anne but perhaps a turn of the century effort as residential styles were changing to other styles. This is the porch featured in two photos posted April 7, 2010 (View from a Porch and Forsaken). The house is for sale, but I have no idea the asking price.
