Milkweeds & Monarchs oh my!

Hi! My name is Kyra Lee. I am a senior at Davis Senior High School and I am a pole vaulter for the DHS track and field team. Fun fact: I don’t have a middle name and I love dogs.

I was inspired to participate in this internship because of my love of nature and my desire to protect and improve the environment. Also, I wanted to gain more work experience in science (to add to the biotechnology internship I did in the spring to help maintain and protect the delta smelt species).

This first day of collecting data was a hot one. I was surprised at how many insects and bugs we observed on the milkweed plants. Hopefully more monarch butterflies will be spotted in the future.
