First Day in the Ditch

Hi! My name is Olivia O’Keeffe and I’m a junior at DHS. I spend most of my free time either running or studying. Both the cross country and track teams run primarily on the levee, so I’ve already spent way too many hours out here. Time for more!! I joined the MMMILC project because ecology and science as a whole are really interesting to me. My sister did this internship last year, as well, and loved it, so I figured I should give it a try.

My first day in the Ditch was very nice. I went for a run on the levee and popped down into the ditch afterwards and tracked down the milkweeds. I stopped at number 212 to take a photo. I’m really excited to watch the plants as they grow and to see the Monarchs later in the season as well!
