Set off in a faraway land where no one can hear your screams, our heroes set off to understand the southern end of our triangular bog. Today’s goal: map the southern end of the bog and flag it for tomorrow’s core sampling journey as markers. This was done by two teams set off in opposite directions. Moving south to north, we collected numerous plant specimens for pressing and took note of core sample sites. After stopping on a tree island for lunch, we journeyed deeper into the abyss of the cattails looking for soft sediment and less trees. The other team also mapped a cattail quadrilateral on the SE side of the bog before crawling back to the road. To see what our team does tomorrow, tune in next time.
