Hi! My name is Sarah Needles and I’m a junior at Davis Senior High, in Mr. Bastin’s 1st period class. In my free time, I enjoy playing softball and reading. I’m excited to be part of this internship because it sounds like a really cool project and I’m interested in environmental protection. I’m also excited to be gaining research experience.
The first day on site, we got to shadow two interns who showed us how to collect the data on the milkweeds and monarchs. It was really helpful to have hands-on training. Even though it was hot it was awesome because we got to see a few caterpillars, a praying mantis, and a couple of monarch butterfly wings.
