Happy Anniversary

Dear Readers,
    Today's edition of Avalonia etrails celebrates the one year anniversary of our blog. We've had 70 posts, since our launch. The overwhelming majority have been written by Beth Sullivan.  I'm sure you'll join me in thanking her for her fine writing, interesting subjects, and wonderful photography. I'd also like to thank Rick Newton for his contributions to our blog. His ideas and stunning photographs helped make our first year so successful.
   Reviewing the last year, our most popular topic has been the horseshoe crab. Of the top three most popular posts, two are about horseshoe crabs.  You can find them here and here.

   In our second year, in addition to Beth's continuing contributions, we expect to publish posts from students at Connecticut College's Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment as part of their studies of several Avalonia properites. And perhaps this is your year to contribute a post or photograph to Avalonia etrails as well.

Thanks for reading,
Al Bach
