First Trip

Hello, my name is Maddie English and I am a junior at Davis Senior High School. I am interested in this internship because it is a great opportunity to gain hands on experience and be involved in an interesting research project.

I had a little trouble finding the milkweed plants at first because a few of them had illegible or nonexistent labels. There were many wasp’s nests in the plants, which was surprising, and there were a lot of big spiders. I was also surprised by the way the milkweed plants looked. When I found plant 322, I saw that it had long stems that looked very dead and I almost didn’t notice the new leaves that were growing at the base of the plant.
