July 3rd: Phenology and fun!

Getting ready

Everyone is excited and ready to go for the day!

We got to the Hjelm House in the morning and had some exciting new maps ready for us to use and update as we found more Echinacea. We went out right away and did phenology in half of the remnants finding quite a few newly flowering plants as well as many more plants that will be flowering soon. The remnant Echinacea populations are getting marked with hundreds of flags and plenty of new tags!

We got done at around noon and headed back to our places of living to make food for our afternoon picnic. We made it to Elk Lake by mid-afternoon and spent the day eating delicious food and having fun on the lake!
