Hi my name is Erika Faith and I am a Junior at Davis Senior High school. When the MMMILC project was first announced to my environmental science class by Mr. Bastin, I was very interested in learning more about field study and global ecology research from Dr. Yang. When he came and spoke to the other interns and I, it was clear I wanted to be a part of this exciting research that will be read by many in the years to come. My first time out in the field was interesting. None of the milkweeds have emerged yet but I was able to find a tag from previous yeas research pictured below. I went with some other friends in the internship and we found the size of the field site very cool. I look forward to seeing the milkweeds and monarchs grow together as the season goes on.
