and Damselflies exhibition is a celebration of the almost magical
qualities of dragonflies, damselflies and their habitats. The prints capture
the spectacular hues and amazing detail of these flying jewels that even
existed more than 350 million years ago.

Irondequoit Bay out to Lake Ontario and Back, end-to-end, non-stop will do so
in order to raise funds for H2O Hero Project and the Water Education
Collaborative (WEC)—a partner of Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). WEC
is a Rochester based coalition that serves to protect and improve water quality
in the lakes and streams of the Genesee regional watershed of Lake Ontario. The
trip is 8.5 miles an estimated 5-7 hours of paddle time. Her goal is to do it
close to 5 hours. LaLopa seeks to help raise awareness about the importance of
water quality and conservation, to build compassion and a caring attitude
toward the health of our bay and its wildlife, and to inspire others.
