My name is Amelia Allison and I am a junior at DHS. I’m excited for this opportunity to learn more about the ecology of milkweeds and monarchs. I am also looking forward to gaining experience in data collection and field work. Professor Yang seems like he will teach us a lot about college level research exposing me to possible college and career tracks.
In the field, I noticed a few unexpected things, such as how close the milkweed plants were and the diversity of insect and plant life in the North Davis “Ditch”. I am very excited to familiarize myself with the research site and be able to observe and monitor things that I would not normally take notice of.
