Today we got to spend time out in Fond du Lac with watershed specialist Kari from the Natural Resource Department. We spent our time today canoeing out on to the rice lakes. Once we were out in the lakes we took water quality samples, that would be tested for nutrients, dissolved oxygen, and other parameters. It was a nice day but we encountered many bugs (by the end of the day I had three ticks). Despite the the bugs it was nice to actually see and do the testing and to see the wild rice growth.
