Some good general sites have already been mentioned. These two are geared for Connecticut but will probably have a lot of overlap with NC.

This site is good for both native flowers and native ferns:
Connecticut Botanical Society

The ID section in the descriptions on this site are sometimes useful. It's geared to garden plants, but has information on where plant is native to, and whether it's invasive in Connecticut.

I like that you are using the sight as a teaching tool as well as learning from it yourself!

Owls are some of my favorites, honestly. Harry Potter influences that a bit, I must admit. I think the spectacled owl is particularly expressive.

Thanks for for those links, loris, they are greatly appreciated.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I stumbled on Discover Life when trying to ID a caterpillar that BugGuide didn't have listed.

By the way, Discover Life is an educational resource, great for your Environmental Club sylvatica. Check out the "Goldenrod Challenge" which looks great for a school group to participate in. All you need is a digital camera and a group of friends to go out and take a bunch of photos of insects on goldenrods. In the process you get to start some life lists which is pretty cool.
