My name is Wade Matern and I am a junior on the varsity lacrosse team. I am interested in the MMMILC project because it is a great chance to be in a college level internship as a high school student. I’m also thinking of majoring in a scientific field so this is an awesome chance to see what research and collecting data is like.
My trip to the ditch was quite short because I live a whopping 5 minute walk away (on Valencia Ave)! In the ditch I found a dead fish next to some poop that was alive just a few days earlier. However, my journey was otherwise uneventful.
