My name is George Van Vorhis and I am a junior at the Davis Senior High School. The reason why I chose to do this internship is because I feel like it’s not only a nice thing to use as credit but also a great source of experience even if i don’t decide to do something similar to it when I grow up.
Today was my first time going out to the ditch and actually finding a milkweed plant. At first the process was difficult because I wasn’t able to find any plants but after a while i got the hang of it and located plant 322. I was suprised at how large milkweed plants could grow over time and it was interesting to see a fully dried up one. Today was a perfect day to look because the sun was really shining. I am really looking forwards to this internship and can’t wait to start collecting data!
