After arriving in Duluth around 12:30 am, we quickly set up our rooms and went to sleep. The next morning, we had a great breakfast at Duluth Grill with Diana and Dean before exploring the UMD campus. We then met briefly with Sophie (one of our mentors) and talked some logistics about the Summer. She gave us 7 articles to read about the effects of Sulfates and Sulfides on the Wild Rice populations in Minnesota. Since then, we have done a LOT of shopping for groceries and kitchen supplies and a bunch of reading about these plants in order to gain a background understanding about what our goal is here this Summer.
