Field Notes
I'm happy because I'm outside and we can frolic in the sunlight and hopefully get a little bit a suntan. I smell fresh air and paint, because someone was painting the football field.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
The plant we found had a more fuzzy stem the thorny like the Beach rose. There fore we did not find the invasive Beach rose.
Photo of my evidence.
The berries were smaller then the Beach rose. They were red circular fruit that were falling off the bush. Our berries were turning black and the Beach Rose berries are usually orange or red.

We did not fond the Beach Rose when looking at the leaves. The leaves we found were spiked at an angle. The way the leaves were set on the stem were opposite not alternative like the Beach Rose.

Good Work, BRES Ecologist The photos show that you did not find beach rose. I am impressed that you were not fooled by the berries. Can you figure out what you did find?

Keep up the good work!
