Field Notes
I’m happy because I’m outdoors with friends. I see my friend running around, I hear people talk, birds chirp, and I smell fire and the forest. I’m not surprised because at first glance at the quadrat, I knew none of the plants looked like the one we were trying to find. Since we were outside, the only problem we ran into was a bit of distraction and the grass soaked our feet, but besides that it was perfect.

Nice pictures.

I think that the supporting evidence could use more details and could be lengthened. But your pictures are great.


Eh cool pics


we didn't find wintergreen either. i love your pictures they are very pretty.

I think that your group did a great job with evidence statements but in your field notes it is a little unclear meaning some words are not used properly for describing and some words are missing when describing the surroundings you are in.

You mean when we wrote the grass part? When we walked over to the trail through the grass it soaked our feet, is that the confusing part? If it is, sorry, we should have been more clear. I didn't even think of it until after we published.
