Jake Barr, a student from Penns Manor, worked to identify dragonfly nymphs Wednesday as his team checked specimens at the aquatic ecology station at the 27th annual Envirothon at Blue Spruce Park near Ernest.

The Indiana County Conservation District hosted 75 students from Marion Center, Penns Manor, Saltsburg and United high schools for the event, where teams of five rotated through competition stations.



Chief Photographer Tom Peel has been photographing events in the county since 1966. He started with the Gazette while in high school and then came on board full-time in 1969. So if you do something good, bad or just interesting, he will most likely be there to take your picture. Tom can be reached at or 724-465-5555 ext. 275.
