My name is David Yo, and I am a senior at Davis High School. I am very excited to participate in this project just because I have the opportunity to go outside and actually monitor and collect data. For me, it is interesting to finally see an actual university level study take place. Although I was raised in Davis, I never got to see research or experiments happenings at UCD. It is super cool to have the opportunity to work alongside the University on such a large scale project.
My excursion into the ditch was unfortunately not as eventful as some others. It was quite easy to find the markers, and identify the numbers. Sunday was overcast, and I had a lingering fear that it would start raining. Either way, I look forward finding more interesting things out in the field, and working alongside UCD staff and fellow DHS classmates.
