Week 3


This week we worked in the same area of the Great Marsh as the
previous week, on the other side of the pathway created by Team 1. We
had previously sprayed herbicide in this area and could already see
the results of the dying cattails! This week was categorized as a
planting week with temperatures around the mid 90’s. We worked with
Carex stricta, Scirpus validus, Sweet flag, and Carex aquatalis,
planting on top of the dead cattails and in the marshy areas. In
total, we planted 6,266 plants in three days! On the fourth day, we
posted up at Red Cup Café and began creating our PowerPoint
presentation for the new interns arriving on July 1st. Also, we became
familiar with the new data spread sheets and logged our service hours.
