First Day at the Field Site

 

 

I’m Tracy, a senior at Davis High School, a student in Mr. Bastin’s fifth period Environmental Science class, and an excited new intern for the MMMILC Project!  I think this is a great opportunity to work in the field and experience nature in a more scientific way.

I took my first official trip to the ditch on Thursday and helped the experienced Maddie Spangler collect data in 103 degrees.  We saw three monarch caterpillars, and helped catch a praying mantis for Maddie’s zoobot project.  I took a second trip to the ditch this morning while walking my dog to practice spotting the milkweed plants.  I didn’t realize how many milkweed plants I’d been passing without noticing for the past three years!
