species-lonicera-morrowii-was-not-found-cuttlefish-2014-10-27 Cuttlefish Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Morrow's honeysuckle Lonicera morrowii I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_1.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/203.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_2.jpg All the plants that we found in our quadrat had needles or round shiny leaves. We concluded that these were pine trees and wild berries. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_3.jpg There was only one small pine tree, but other than that there was leaves and wild berry leaves. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_4.jpg There were no bushes in sight. It was a sunny and breezy day. The location was in the woods that is in the back of our school, it was kind of shaded because of the trees. There was a lot of leaves all over the ground.
species-salix-discolor-was-not-found-roshe-2014-10-27 Roshe Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Pussy willow Salix discolor I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/roshe/image.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_3.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/720.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_0.jpg We didn't find the pussy willow but we did find the plants that resembled it. sites/default/files/roshe/image_1.jpg The plants we found resembled the leaves and stems of the pussy willows but varied in some ways. sites/default/files/roshe/image_2.jpg The plants we saw had write spots on them, but didn't have the white buds that the pussy willow have. Field Notes: it was a nice day outside, but it was very cold and windy. We did not, however find the pussy willow, which wasn't honestly that surprising considering the pussy willow is usually seen in between March and April. We did however find a plant that did have almost have a resemblance to the pussy willow. We were wondering why there weren't any signs of pussy willows, but maybe because of the conclusion that pussy willows aren't native to Raymond. While I was out there I could feel the cold breeze blowing against my skin, and I could see the leaves on the ground.
species-salix-discolor-was-found-hairy-maple-leaves-2014-10-27 The Hairy Maple Leaves Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Pussy willow Salix discolor I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_1.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/720.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_5.jpg The wood was smooth and had small yellow dots with no buds. The tree was in the field. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_6.jpg The plant had oval leaves with ridged sides and thick middle of the leaf. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_7.jpg The under side of the leaf with soft hair like fuz that matched the color of the leaf. I am happy because we finally found the pussy willow after a lot of searching. I see the pussy willow, I hear birds and the wind and i smell fresh grass and the air. I am supprised that we didn’t see any buds on the tree because in the photo on vital signs there are white buds. The problem we had is there were no buds which leaves us to wonder if it was actually a pussy willow.
species-salix-discolor-was-not-found-pink-fluffy-monsters-2014-10-27 Pink Fluffy Monsters Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Pussy willow Salix discolor I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_5.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/720.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_7.jpg There were no buds on the plant that resembled the ones that are on the pussy willow. Considering that the pussy willow buds early on in the year sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_8.jpg There weren't any leaves and the leaves on the ground around the plant we found did not have the same characteristics as the leaves on the pussy willow. sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_6.jpg The bark on the plant we found did not have all of the same visual and textural characteristics as the pussy willow bark. The pussy willow bark was redish like the plant we found, but it did not have the same textures as the pussy willow. I'm happy we found a similar plant. I see a river and many plants. I hear the river and rushing leaves. I smell fresh air and grass. I'm surprised of what we didn't find because I see them a lot. Questions and problems I ran into were that many of the plants we looked at were similar but none of the plants were the pussy willow. Also, the pussy willow buds in the spring.
species-pinus-strobus-was-not-found-smarties-2014-10-27-0 The Smarties Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 White pine Pinus strobus I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/the_smarties/study_site_smarties.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_2.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/700.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_3.jpg The bark is smooth, it has no crevices, and it was not as thick as a white pine tree. sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_4.jpg There were leaves not needles. sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_5.jpg The tree was shorter and thinner then a white pine tree. I see, hear, smell... I see trees. I hear people talking and leaves rustling. I smell nature. Questions and problems I ran into.… We couldn't find the tree because all the needles fell off the tree.
species-kalmia-angustifolia-was-not-found-zeendrew-2014-10-27 Zeendrew Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Laurel Kalmia angustifolia I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/zeendrew/image.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_5.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/714.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_2.jpg There were no flowers just leaves and trees pretty much. sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_3.jpg It was also fall so it wasn't really in bloom It was really cold so there wouldn't be very many flowers out we were in the forest. Also the plant is best bloomed in June and July. We didn't know where we would find the plant. We ended up not finding the plant. We tried looking in the trail and which had no sign of water, so we thought the plant lived by water.
species-asclepias-syriaca-was-not-found-men-top-hats-2014-10-27 The Men In Top Hats Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Milkweed Asclepias syriaca I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_5.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_1.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/729.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_2.jpg This picture was taken at the start of the walking trail behind Jordan Small Middle School and we know we did not find any Milkweed because there was no evidence from the ID card that we found a hint of Milkweed beside a plant tha had a simple leaf type and blade leaf shape. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_3.jpg The closest plant we could find to Milkweed was this plant and as you see it doesn't have the same leaf arrangement or leaf edge. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_4.jpg Where we were looking was probably not ideal to find Milkweed however we did see a property that looked promising for some signs of Milkweed (we couldn't enter because it was a no trespassing zone). When we went in to the trail we heard car noises from the road about 200 meters away. We smelt the fresh air and the dirt paths. We felt the cold breeze of winter throughout our skin.
species-gaultheria-procumbens-was-found-carebears-2014-10-27 Carebears Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Wintergreen Gaultheria procumbens I think I found it Native sites/default/files/carebears/image.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_12.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/728.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_13.jpg We were able to spot the wintergreen berry because of its vibrant red color and the wintergreen leaves. They were waxy, a little bit of soft, and smooth. sites/default/files/carebears/image_14.jpg The leaves help us identify the wintergreen. The leaves were alternating, one leave after another, and smelled minty when they were spilt/crunched. sites/default/files/carebears/image_15.jpg The length of the wintergreen leaves are 2 to 5 centimeters long, and the red berry was 1/2 centimeter wide. Once we measured the plant we made sure we found the correct one. 10/27/14 It's an October day and it about 58 degrees out. Our study site is in the woods in between two nature paths behind a school. We decided to study wintergreen berry because it looks familiar in the area, and we have all seen it before here in Raymond. We found it pretty quickly, but there where only three berries left because its almost winter.
species-euonymus-alatus-was-not-found-titans-2014-10-27 Titans Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Burning bush Euonymus alatus I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/titans/image.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_2.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/220.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_1.jpg The leaves are not ridged on both sides but, they did match the size of the burning bush. sites/default/files/titans/image_3.jpg In the fall the the burning bush leaves turn red, these leaves were still a green color. sites/default/files/titans/image_4.jpg The bushes branches do not feel like cork or have wings. We are disappointed because we did not find the burning bush. The bush we found was gray and brown and a little curled. The bushes leaves smelled like fresh lavender but, the burning bushes leaves smelled like lemons. I’m surprised we didn't find it because we looked for a half an hour.
species-gaultheria-procumbens-was-found-potato-sponges-2014-10-27 The Potato Sponges Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Wintergreen Gaultheria procumbens I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_potato_sponges/image_0.jpg sites/default/files/the_potato_sponges/image_5.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/728.jpg sites/default/files/the_potato_sponges/image_2.jpg Wintergreen can sometimes bloom, but we did not find a wintergreen that has blooms on it sites/default/files/the_potato_sponges/image_3.jpg Wintergreen has three leaves per stem. sites/default/files/the_potato_sponges/image_4.jpg Wintergreen can have one to two stems. I am happy because i am with my friends. The problems i ran into were trying to find a good wintergreen. I see the wintergreen, i hear my classmates talking, and I smell the wintergreen. We were not suprised with what we found because wintergreen is everywhere.
species-betula-populifolia-was-found-jjns-2014-10-27 JJNS Raymond, ME 2014-10-27 13:00:00 Gray birch Betula populifolia I think I found it Native sites/default/files/jjns/image.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_2.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/gray_birch.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_4.jpg The tree we fond is indeed orange under the gray outside. sites/default/files/jjns/image_3.jpg There are black spots where the branches meet the tree. sites/default/files/jjns/image_5.jpg The tree has less leaves in fall and winter then it has in the summer. I am happy because the species was berry easy to find. We didn't have many questions, but we had a little trouble putting our square meter in place. I see many trees with a bunch of fallen leaves. We smell fresh wet grass and we herd little birds chirping. I was surprised that it was so easy to find the gray birch tree.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-cajaazqu-2014-10-27 CaJaAzQu Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Asian bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/cajaazqu/img_0933.jpg sites/default/files/cajaazqu/img_0901.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/cajaazqu/img_0916.jpg The unique pointed tip of the leaf proves that it is a bittersweet leaf. sites/default/files/cajaazqu/img_0908_0.jpg The orange shell over the red berries inside show that the berries are from the celastrus orbiculatus. sites/default/files/cajaazqu/img_0909.jpg The stem of this plant wraps around a living tree to give it support. This suffocates the tree and steals it's photosynthisis. We weren't happy because it was very cold! I see an invasive species called the bittersweet. I hear the sound of my peers talking. I smell the smell of nature and a faint stench of cow klunk. Our camera was tricky and hard to operate. I was suprised that we found berries considering they bloom in early August.
species-rhus-hirta-was-found-team-typhina-2014-10-27 Team Typhina Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Staghorn sumac Rhus hirta I think I found it Native sites/default/files/team_typhina/screen_shot_2014-10-27_at_10.59.04_am.png sites/default/files/team_typhina/img_1296.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/717.jpg sites/default/files/team_typhina/img_1324.jpg Leaves-The Leaves are 6-7 cm long. The Sumac leaves are suppose to be 6-11 cm long, which 6-7 cm falls into that category. There also should be 11-31 leaflets on the stem. There was about 15 or 16 leaflets on what we found. sites/default/files/team_typhina/img_1311.jpg Stem-The barks was a bit fuzzy at the end on each of the branches. However there was no fruit at the end of the branches. sites/default/files/team_typhina/img_1322.jpg Seasonal-In autumn the foliage turns a brilliant red. The sumac that my team found also had a bright red color. I was happy because I found the sumac at last. I hear the leaves blowing, I can’t smell because it’s so cold, and I see bright, pretty sumac leaves.I'm surprise by what I found because I wasn’t sure if it was it or not. But I expected it to be a little harder to find and a little more extraordinary.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-lph-2014-10-27 L.P.H. Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/l.p.h./img_1341.jpg sites/default/files/l.p.h./img_1343_0.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/l.p.h./img_1350.jpg The leaves are opposite of each other, and they also have finely toothed edges leaves with glossy type texture. They are also round with long pointed tips. sites/default/files/l.p.h./img_1337.jpg The stem is a vine that is smooth and green. That means it is young, if it’s old it would have been rough and bumpy and the vine is a orange color. sites/default/files/l.p.h./img_1344.jpg The seasonal change is the red and orange berries, there are red and orange berries only seasonally. We are happy because we think we found the Oriental Bittersweet. Also because it was not that hard to find. But one reason we were unhappy is because it is freezing cold outside. I see little orange berries hanging from the tightly wrapped vine around the tree. I also see a bunch of my classmates. I hear the birds chirping and the wind blowing. There wasn’t much of a smell, but I did smell dead leaves and air. I was surprised that the Bittersweet had orange berries on it, and that the vine was so tightly wrapped around the tree. The Oriental Bittersweet vine was not surprisingly hard to find. There was no problem in finding the Oriental Bittersweet vine. But one thing that could have been better was the GPS coordinates. because we got them wrong. Other than that we had no questions or problems.
species-rhus-hirta-was-found-sumac-searchers-2014-10-27 Sumac Searchers Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Staghorn sumac Rhus hirta I think I found it Native sites/default/files/sumac_searchers/img_1364_0.jpg sites/default/files/sumac_searchers/img_1365.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/717.jpg sites/default/files/sumac_searchers/img_1372.jpg It’s leaves are alternate,compond-pinate, oval, and it’s toothed. The stem is hard, green and brownish color. When we found it the color of the leaf was bright red but in the summer and winter it grows fuzzy red fruit cones the gets 10 to 20 centimeters long at the end of the branch. sites/default/files/sumac_searchers/img_1394.jpg the Stem is hard, green, and brown, also the whole plant was huge. sites/default/files/sumac_searchers/img_1372_0.jpg the bush was very large Here are the notes.I am happy because finding the sumac was easy because of it’s color.I see,hear,and smell colorful bright red, we couldn’t hear anything, and it smelled great.I am surprised by what we found because “it was near a giant tree and we are surprised that it didn’t die because of all the shade from the tree.” said Devin.We didn’t have any problems.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-cupcake-crew-2014-10-27 CUPCAKE CREW Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/cupcake_crew/img_1346.jpg sites/default/files/cupcake_crew/img_1386_0.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/cupcake_crew/img_1356.jpg Actual: Leaves are arranged in an alternate pattern, are simple type, in an oval shape and are toothed. What we found: Leaves are arranged in an alternate pattern, are simple type, in an oval shape and are toothed. They were the same! sites/default/files/cupcake_crew/img_1345.jpg Actual: Smooth and and green when young. Round, woody, and bumpy when old. What we found: The stem was round and bumpy. Just like the old version of a bittersweet! Actual: Woody vine growing up a tree, shrub or building (non living thing) up to 18.5 m long. What we found: A long bumpy vine growing on a tree. sites/default/files/cupcake_crew/img_1350.jpg Actual: From June to August there are bunches of small green flowers. After August their are bright red fruits. What we found: Some green leaves but mostly red and some yellow fruits. The reason that we were happy was because we had the opportunity to be outside of the classroom and not do intellectual things.We saw all of the plant life that flourished in our designated area. We smelt the stench of dying plants in fall and the sweet aroma of field flowers. Then we heard the roaring sounds of a soaring airplane from the skies. We were surprised to see so many leaves that were still beating with green because of how late we are in the current fall season. A major problem that the CUPCAKE CREW had run into is that since it is so close to the winter season, the temperature was very low and chilled us to the bone.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-mas-2014-10-27 M.A.S Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/m.a.s/img_0851.jpg sites/default/files/m.a.s/img_0879.jpg Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/m.a.s/img_0861.jpg The leaf evidence for the oriental bittersweet is that the plant has tooth edged leaves. The oriental bittersweet also has caved edges on it’s leaves. The leaves were usually around eight centimeters, but some grew larger and some a bit smaller. sites/default/files/m.a.s/img_0878.jpg The stem evidence was a mixture of brown and green and was really fuzzy in some spots. It sort of had flakes of leaves growing on it. The plant evidence for the oriental bittersweet is that it had vines wrapped around the trees, with berries and large leaves on it’s branches. “I'm in a good team that can cooperate well and not fool around.” - Mahamed S. “I am happy because I am in a fun, progressive team where we work well with each other.” - Anthony M. I see a bumpy texture, and a beautiful color of lilac. I smell the essence of honey and sugar. I’m surprised that our team found the Bittersweet because there was a lot of different species. We had trouble knowing which side of the paper to use, setting us back quite a bit. We saw some plants with some of the evidence, but not all of it.

With leaf smushed around it. sites/default/files/k.e.d./img_0023.jpg The leafs around it have long pointed tips at the end. And it is also green and some times changes colors. We found the Bittersweet plant and identified it. We also back it up with evidence for identifying the plant. Grass,leaves and plants because of the fall weather.I didn’t know the stems could naturally twist around another stem.It was really cold outside. We all were not sure we would be able to find the Bittersweet plant and identify the plant. All in all we found the bittersweet.

When we looked the plant up on the internet, they showed that they were red. There was one berry that looked like it was open, and the inside was red. We thought it was a seasonal change. sites/default/files/bittersweets2/img_0953_1.jpg The leaves were alternate, simple, oval, and toothed. They were yellow green. sites/default/files/bittersweets2/img_0957.jpg The bittersweet stem was climbing around the trunk of a tree. The stem was brown and wrapped around the tree like a vine. We were happy because we found the plant. The leaves were bright yellow, making it kind of hard to identify. We saw bittersweet, we heard kids voices, and we smelled wet dirt. We were surprised by how hard it was to find the plant even though it didn't look like it did on the species card.

I am happy because we found the bitter sweet on such short notice. I can see that the leaves are yellow with red or yellow berries. The vines are huge and fiberous. My group was surprised by what we found because,we didn’t know the stems could get so thick and tall.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-spongebob-plantpants-2014-10-27 spongebob plantpants Westbrook Maine 2014-10-27 12:17:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/gmri/copyright_flag.jpg sites/default/files/spongebob_plantpants/unnamed-2.png Westbrook Middle School sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/spongebob_plantpants/unnamed_0.png Orange/red berries were growing on the tips of the plant’s vines. This is the Seasonal Change for the bittersweet that occurs after August and I found the plant in September. sites/default/files/spongebob_plantpants/unnamed-2_0.png Round, green leaves were growing on the plant vine. The leaves were long with a pointed tip. The edges were toothed. sites/default/files/spongebob_plantpants/unnamed-3.png The stem was wood like and wrapped around a tree. The stems were long and kinda bumpy. Some vines wrap around other vines. I am happy because I identified and found the bittersweet plant. I see grass, trees, plants, and leaves. I didn’t smell anything, but I heard airplanes pass by as I try and identify the bittersweet. I’m not surprised that I found the bittersweet because I looked at the evidence page to prove that the plant I was looking at was the bittersweet. The seasonal change, leaves, and stem matched up to the evidence page. I couldn’t focus that well because the weather outside was cold.

We found the correct plant. “I see, hear, smell” the vines intertwine together. With the leaves being right next to the thorns. I thought there wouldn’t be as many vines that looked like the bittersweet. We got in a argument over witch plant was right because their were two plants that looked exactly like the plant we were studying. The leaves texture looked the same as the picture. It had the same shade of light green. Also it had the same oval shape. The stem of the leaf was connected to the vine just like the bittersweet and it had the thornes all around the vine. Since the vine had been wrapped around a large tree and the leaves popped out we knew it was a bittersweet leaf.
