Hello, my name is Sydney Russo, I am a junior at Davis Senior High School in Mr. Bastin’s Environmental Science class. I am looking forward to being part of the this internship, and getting hands on experience in the field.
The milkweed plants were somewhat difficult to find at first, but after finding the labeled plants in the white containers I successfully found plant number 322. The milkweed plant was mostly dead, but towards the bottom of the plant it was bright green, and beginning to grow back. There was a surprising amount of wasps and wasp nests on the milkweed plants. Many of the labels were ineligible or completely missing making it difficult to locate certain plants.
