This last week of class has been jam-packed but fun! Visits to the Tom Ridge Environmental Center in Erie and PLE's next door neighbor, the PA State Fish Hatchery, were really interesting. A little time spent frolicking on the beach on Presque Isle was welcomed by the class after 2 1/2 weeks of research and field work. My group, team Splishy-Splashy, wrapped up our research project in the field and began to polish our paper. I'm grateful to have had the experience to work with a group and collaborate in order to design and carry out research. Since group work will probably be required at some point in our careers, I'm glad it was included in this class. On that note, this class was chockfull of invaluable experiences that will be applied in hopefully all of our careers. I wish all of my Field Techniques classmates the best, especially the graduating seniors! ¡Adios!
