This past week was strenuous on the Mammal Group. We started collecting data for our research but ran into some hiccups along the way. Luckily, our problem-solving skills came in handy. There were also a few communication errors between my partner and I in the beginnin...

The internship is already halfway over and that

Another week has passed, Alyssa and I have set all of our transects, my brush pants are drenched in sweat and full of thorns, and research is fully underway!

This week we got to work with three high school interns, which was an interesting experience. You don’t realize...

Week 3 has come to a close, with many exciting things to share and reflect on. This third week came and went just as quickly as the previous two, but not without leaving many fun memories and learning experiences for the 2019 REEU summer cohort. All five groups were ve...
