This topic is for those who are returning, or maybe just joining LV, and looking for projects to do during the Covid. This is NOT a clean up month. It is just for some of us to make a goal and see how many projects we can finish in august and do something motivating and fun during these uncertain times. Feel free to claim in these projects!

We have orphaned a section in the Natural History Volume 5, so now we have 2 sections to finish the book.

ETA: All others are not just claimed, but recorded already!
