I’m Kirstin Bastin a Jr. at Davis Senior High School. There are many reasons that I am interested in doing the MMMILC project! Honestly, it is probably because my dad is the environmental science teacher at DHS and said that participating in this study would be a good idea for me. I really love to do anything outdoors that involves bugs or plants so when he told me I would get to be with caterpillars I was pretty pumped. My friend Maddy and I are both doing this internship so we went out together to the field to look for Milkweed plants. I found myself a lizard while on my journey, and tried to catch it. Sadly, it ran far far away from me. It was an overall good trip to the field I just wish I had been able to catch the lizard.
