Field Notes
In the developed area we saw many different plant species. We were surprised of how much can be in such a small area. Not everyone was in the group but we were happy that we were away from the cold breeze and the day has been fun so far. We were happy because it had been a good day so far. We could see the other kids in our class around us, the sounds of the younger children on the playground and we could smell a bit of pine.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We found out that this wasn't Japanese knotweed because there was only a small amount of it unlike the bush that grows up to three meters tall of Japanese knotweed.

We think we didn't find Japanese knotweed because the tree was big, but it didn't have oval, smooth leaves or bamboo stems.

We think we didnt find it because the leaves were not alternate they were whorled

Beautiful site photo. Beautiful forest floor moss. I want to visit!

Glad you're keeping an eye on invasives, especially in places like these!

Great work Number 3 to getting to publishing your data.
Evidence #3 picture is clear and close evidence for not being the plant you were looking for. The tilted pictures make it a little hard to view without tilting my head. May not want to do that next time.
