6th Field Trip Project Updates

I would first like to say that I am sorry that I have not being so committed updating the blog with updates and events at the field since the 5th field trip. A lot has occurred and changed over the last few months and I will try to provide some updates of where things are at the moment and how we got where we are currently. So, stay connected and please feel free to leave comments or suggestions.
