Field Notes
This was a really amazing experience, because we all were able to observe plants and their natural habitats that we've been by for years, but never noticed, or knew the importance of.

Supporting Evidence

This was verified by both the field guide, and the science teacher.

The grass was broken and there was a picture of what the stem should look like and we matched it with the broken piece of stem.

Is we also matched the leaves of the Phragmites (Phragmites australis) in the pictures to the actual leaves in front of us.

great drawing fireman

There are cattails in the drawing.... even though we did not get an accurate length of the cattails they were at least 4 ft to 6 ft.

You're so right about walking by invasive species for years and years, and then - BOOM! - you start seeing them everywhere! It's so important to know what is living in your backyard. You'll have a much better sense now for how your local ecosystems change season to season and year to year.

Fab sketch!

the broken stems helped us see that this was the plant. we were also surprised by what we didn't notice in our backyard too. Is that a cattail also in with the phragmites? How tall is it?
