Field Log 24-June-2013

Today we spent the morning working on the recruitment experiment at Hegg Lake and a waterfowl production area southwest of Kensington. We were quite productive during the morning, finishing four plots! While we were in the field, we found an array of new forbs flowering for the first time. After today, we are finished with the recruitment experiment and will be moving on to work in the common gardens.

In the afternoon we were treated to a presentation by Amy Dykstra on seedling recruitment. It was helpful to get more background information on Echinacea and the different ongoing experiments we get to be involved with. We ended the day by preparing for tomorrow and readying the necessary flags for flagging common garden 2 at Hegg Lake.
