OUR WETLAND ASSESSMENT BEGUN！
Today each group was assigned a wetland to survey. After breakfast, we organized a schedule for our equipment and each group went to their designated wetland. The belted kingfishers had Curtis marsh which is on Queens University road.
We started by mapping out the area of the march which was easier said than done. None of us could get through the surveying without falling into the water and mud. We got to see lots of species and plants and were able to take many pictures. After all the hard work, it was time for lunch and we walked back.
After lunch, we had to go back to do some more surveying. We switched with another group and got to use the phytoplankon container for analysis. We also measured with the densitometer which was insightful.
Then it was time to go back for dinner and some free time before we had to meet up and work with our group to analyze our data. After an exhausting day, we all decided to watch an awesome movie and plan our exciting day trip to Ottawa!
