Hi everyone, my name is Maddie Spangler and I’m a junior at Davis High. I decided to do this internship because it’s a great opportunity to get experience working in the field and help do research for a college level study. We’re lucky that we live near such a nice university and have the option to participate in this, not many other kids in high school have a chance to do this.
I went down to the ditch my first time with Erika and Kayla who are also participating in the project. We didn’t see any plants that had emerged yet, but found the tags nonetheless. One thing we also noticed was that there were tags still out from last years project. It will be fun to watch the plants emerge and grow as the season goes on!
