Mr. Barry Guillot, a science teacher at the Harry Hurst Middle School in Destrehan, Louisiana, asked Don to come up with a composite design for his “Wetland Watchers” - a group of students who are working hard to restore an area of cypress swamp on the shores of Lake Ponchartrain. This drawing is based directly on suggestions provided by these kids, and will be used to raise awareness and funds to assist their service learning project.
