Hi! My name is Claire Duisenberg. I am a junior at Davis High School in Mr. Bastin’s 3rd period class. I decided to do the MMMILC internship because my brother did it two years ago and said it was a cool experience. I also wanted to gain research experience! I was very surprised to see how spread out the milkweed plants were, when I went for the first time. I was also disappointed that I did not see any caterpillars. Apart from school, I love spending time outside. I enjoy playing soccer and lacrosse and going running. Im excited to be able to spend more time outdoors by participating in this internship!
