I’ve been accepted as an ESA SEEDS mentor! This is a great program which helps improve the participation of undergraduate underrepresented groups at the big annual Ecological Society of America meeting

Well the Summer field work is over. We had a good time, and gathered valuable data which I’m excited to work up.  Our #FieldworkFaceoff was also featured in Atlas Obscura. I can’t help but share one of the beautiful photos!
