Hello! My name is Emma, and I am a junior at Davis High. I am mostly interested in this internship because I love bugs, especially caterpillars, and I am always excited to learn more about them (and to spend time outdoors). Today, I didn’t see any bugs, but I did see a milkweed plant marked #83 that didn’t appear to have grown much yet. Next to it I found a dead fish covered in flies and a group of honeybees all clustered around the same plant. There were lots of birds in the Ditch as well, but I heard rather than saw them as they all seemed to be high up in the trees where I couldn’t see very well. It was a very interesting trip and I’m excited to go there again!
NOTE: I got the wrong plant the first time around; I went back yesterday and found #281.
