Hiya my name’s Maya Tripathi. I joined the MMMILC Project because interning for an ecological research project seemed like a pretty unique and interesting opportunity as a high school student.
My hunt for Milkweed 322 was definitely much more difficult than I expected. I biked back and forth a couple times, keeping my eyes on the edges of the path, until I realized the plants are farther off the path and subtly labeled. The smart thing to do probably would have been to check the photos on the blog before I headed out, and eventually I did after I’d circled twice. It was alright, though. Just an unplanned workout.
