HILTON POND Small's Ragwort is one of those composite wildflowers that can actually be identified with some confidence--mostly because it's one of the few DYCs blooming in spring at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History. For a photo essay about this eye-pleasing yellow blossom--and its surprising pollinator--please visit the 1-7 May 2006 installment of "This Week at Hilton Pond" at

NOVA: "Mystery of the Megaflood"
Broadcast: May 16, 2006 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (Repeat)
One of the Earth's strangest geological riddles is the evidence for
a huge catastrophe that struck eastern Washington State thousands of
years ago. It took scientists decades to figure out that a colossal
flood had carved out bizarre landscape features strewn across
thousands of square miles. On "Mystery of the Megaflood," NOVA gets
to the bottom of what created this compelling detective story. The
program features a dogged geologist sticking to his bold theory for
decades despite virtual professional banishment. Eventually, other
geologists joined his cause and filled in the intricate details,
which NOVA recreates in stunning computer animation to show what may
be one of the most spectacular series of events ever to occur on
our planet.
