Hi! My name is Stephanie Milbrodt and I am an intern from the environmental science class at Davis Senior High School. I signed up to participate in this internship so that I can gain real world experience and spend more time truly observing nature. After visiting the site, I am sure that I will be spending many hot days in the sun during these next few months, but, luckily, many of the plants I saw were either in the shade or near some form of it. It was interesting to see the variation in the sizes of the milkweed plants, and I look forward to more interesting discoveries with more days in the ditch.
