Jackson Keesling: Week 5 Recap
Week 5 involved a lot of tough field work. It was our first week of having 15 camera traps up, so we anticipate having to do a lot of vegetation surveys and camera data to check in the future. The wildlife in the area seemed to be more active this week as we saw red-eared sliders, northern water snakes, deer, raccoons, and, of course, plenty of cicadas. Our paper is slowly coming together and the anticipation of solidifying our findings and presenting them to our peers and mentors is increasing. This weekend I was able to go home and see my family, so I am entering week 6 refreshed and prepared to work again.
