Jasmund National Park

The Jasmund National Park is a nature reserve on the Jasmund peninsula, in the northeast of Rügen island in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. It is famous for containing the largest chalk cliffs in the Königsstuhl; these cliffs are up to 161 m above the Baltic Sea. The beech forests behind the cliffs are part of the national park. Consisting of only 30 km2, this is the smallest national park in Germany; the park was founded in 1990 by the last government of East Germany prior to the German reunification. On June 25, 2011 the beech forest in the park was added to UNESCO World Heritage Site as an extension of the Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany; the chalk cliffs face constant erosion. With every storm, parts of the cliffs fall, including rocks and fossils of sponges and sea urchins; the most majestic part of the cliffs is the Königsstuhl. One of the most scenic and best known of the chalk outcrops, the Wissower Klinken, collapsed into the Baltic Sea on February 24, 2005, in a landslide caused by spring-thaw weather conditions.

Because of the special geological characteristics of the Jasmund National Park, it is home to many rare plants and animals. In the woods of the Stubnitz, behind the cliffs, there are numerous water-filled dells and hollows, most of which came into existence as ice-age dead-ice holes. A wide range of plants are found in this area, for example, black alder, European crab apple, wild service tree and orchids. A variety of birds live in the park: white-tailed eagle, house martin and the peregrine falcon. Since its creation in 1934, the Jasmund National Park has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. One of the main tasks of the National Park Authority is to ensure that the diverse habitats of the park remain undisturbed, whilst still allowing visitors an insight into the nature of the region. In March 2004, the visitor centre, the Königsstuhl National Park Centre, was opened.

Orleans High School (Vermont)

Orleans High School was a school in Orleans, Vermont. It functioned as both a high school and middle school to the village of Orleans and surrounding towns for nearly half a century; the high school was replaced by the Lake Region Union High School on September 11, 1967. Orleans alumni continue to meet annually, they fund scholarships for descendants of graduates. The building today is used to educate elementary students from the village. Orleans graduated its first class in 1901 from a wooden two-story building where the Federated Church now stands on School Street. While that school was differed in name and location from the eventual brick structure on School Street, its graduates were recognized as part of a continuous alumni for attendees. Forty students graduated from 1901-1910. In 1914, 35 students were attending the high school out of a total for the system of 232; the purpose of all high schools of that time was to prepare scholars for college. To improve attendance and the overall efficiency of the system as per the High school movement, the school began to offer Agriculture, Home Economics, Commercial.

The old building became the elementary school, but it continued to house the Agriculture and Industrial Arts programs, as well as the Superintendent's office, for the town of Barton; when the regional high school opened in 1967, the elementary school moved to the vacated high school building. The old elementary school building was sold and razed and the Federated Church was built on the site; the old high school did not have a regulation-sized gymnasium. This was not prejudicial to its use until the 1950s. After that time, The boys' and girls' basketball teams practiced there, but hosted home games at other locations. For many years, OHS' "home court" was at Derby High School. In 1928, there were seven faculty members; this had increased to 13 by 1967. Until the regional high school opened, the principals were all expected to teach several classes, as well as to be the school's guidance counselor. Besides the village of Orleans, the following towns sent their children to be educated there: Albany, Coventry and Charleston.

The first Vermont Science Fair was held at the school in 1950. An Orleans student went on to represent the state at the New England Fair that year. From 1910 to 1967, 1,358 students graduated. Total for 1901–1957 was 1,398. There were girls and boys basketball teams at the beginning of the 20th century, as well as baseball for boys. Basketball was the only girls sport.

Lyman House Memorial Museum

The Lyman House Memorial Museum known as the Lyman Museum, is a Hilo, Hawaii-based natural history museum founded in 1931 in the Lyman family mission house built in 1838. The main collections were moved to an adjacent modern building in the 1960s, while the house is open for tours as the island's oldest surviving wood-framed building. Reverend David Belden Lyman and his wife, Sarah Joiner Lyman, arrived in 1832, missionaries from the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, it was one of the first houses on the island to be built in the style of their native New England, using native koa and ohia woods. Guests included Isabella Bird. In 1854 - 1859 the new Haili Church was built across the street, replacing the thatched structures that served for the congregation; the mission house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 24, 1978 as site 78001012. It is located at 276 Haili Street in Hilo, coordinates 19°43′18″N 155°5′28″W. A century after the missionaries' arrival, a museum was founded in 1931 by their descendants.

In the late 1960s, architect Vladimir Ossipoff designed and built a Museum building adjacent to the mission house. Upon its completion, the Museum expanded its exhibits, it has extensive displays on Hawaiian culture and is renowned for its collection of shells and minerals, including a specimen of orlymanite, named for Orlando Hammond Lyman, the museum's founder and great grandson of David and Sarah Lyman.
