Midland Spring: A Student's Guide

Written and illustrated by Macy D'Attile '21

Summer 2021

In the spring of 2021, Macy D’Attile ’21 dove into an incredible project: creating a field guide to Midland’s flora. She spent the majority of her free hours during her senior year “scouring Midland’s trails for plants,” taking “time to sit and draw the plants where [she] had found them” in their native habitat.

With an amazing amount of hard work, some generous guidance from Jeff Goddard, Midland’s Marine Biology & Field Ecology teacher, and the support of local printer John Nygren of JanoPrint, Macy published her collection. The result is delightful: a beautifully written and illustrated book detailing forty-six Midland plants.

Soon, you can have your very own copy of Midland Spring: A Student’s Guide to help you learn about or remind you of the wonderful natural world that Midlanders coexist with! We know you’ll love it just as much as we do. Stay tuned to this page and our social media for a link when copies are available for purchase.
