This week, week nine, our group ventured out to The Ditch to collect data on plants 394 to 418 on June 3rd around 3:30pm. I was paired with Sarah Grahn and Tate Perez. We were surprised to find very little plants growing in this particular section, and on those we did spot, there were no monarchs. Based on the looks of the surrounding grass, the plants may have been entirely mowed down. Something else to report this week is that it’s getting much hotter as the season starts to change, and much sunnier, too.
