My name is Maya McHale and I am a Senior at Davis High. I love animals, eating, and being outdoors. I signed up for this internship because I am planning on studying environmental studies in college, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to gain some internship experience in a related field of study.
I have grown up living right next to the ditch, however I only ever go out there while walking my dog. I have never stopped or slowed down to really observe the flora and fauna or the area, so it was interesting to go out today. Sophia and I met up earlier this afternoon to head down to the ditch. The milkweed plants were easy to spot thanks to the blue markers. I’m looking forward learning more about milkweeds and monarchs, and gaining valuable experience throughout the next few months!
