Hey my name’s Sophia Sears, and I’m a senior at Davis Senior High School. I played field hockey for four years at the high school and play five different musical instruments. Most importantly, I love doing anything outdoors, from hiking under the sun to collecting shells on the beach. I visited milkweed plant #481 today, and it has just barley emerged aboveground. One suprising thing I noticed during my trip down to the Ditch was that there was no water left in the creek. Usually at this point in the year there is no water in the Ditch, but after the considerable amount of rain California has had , I assumed a little bit of water would still be running.
