Last weekend, Karina and I got to participate in another project that our mentor has going on. A lot of the sampling we got to do was related to our current project and it was great to be out in the middle of no where gathering sediment and water data. The mosquitoes weren’t too friendly though.. Oh, and I fell into the water at the last site.

Collecting samples at Fond Du Lac

Rice and more rice!
We had the privilege of going to the Fond Du Lac Reservation to look at wild rice in some of the lakes. Also one of our mentors Tom Howes prepared us some delicious rice for breakfast. 🙂
From fieldwork to labwork
Cynthia and I pulled a late night lab session with Nate Johnson, where we learned the proper procedures for filtering and preserving Mercury, DOC, anion and cation samples.
