Hitch Report 3

The Kansas Crew has gotten into the flow of surveying. Teams have been switched and everyone’s morale has improved. We had a fun on our conservation day doing GIS. John Tyler led two others as they explored Perry Lake looking for water valves. The following week at Kansas University Medical/ Community Garden, we garnered fresh vegetables while picking weeds. We learned about common garden pests with Raven, who was our head chef at training. We were also taught about organic natural pesticides. The garden is beautiful and includes activities which interest everyone in the team. To make our time in Lawrence even better than it already was, three members of the Oklahoma Army Corps of Engineer Survey crew came to visit. We got to show them around Lawrence and exchange work stories. Exploring Kansas University Campus and their Natural History Museum was quite the adventure. Hopefully we can make a trip down there to see them in Oklahoma.
