Duluth Farmer’s Market

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Stopped into the Duluth Farmer’s Market yesterday to see what it was all about! We meandered up and down the long red barn checking out different stands that showcased their farm’s own vegetables, plants, syrups, cheeses, honeys, jewelry, paintings, etc. It was a really neat atmosphere where everyone was very friendly, offering samples and asking if we had any questions. As you can see from the photo below, the Duluth Farmer’s Market is located at 14th Ave. East & 3rd St. and is open Saturday’s 7AM-Noon and Wednesday’s 2pm-6pm. Go check out the market during one of those times to eat healthy, fresh, and local!

Plants and Poetry

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

The English & Arts Club hosted Plants and Poetry this week as a way to celebrate the beautiful Spring weather we’ve been having. We had different types of prompts on the board such as “Write a poem that includes the recipe for your favorite dish”, choose a title prompts (The Dinosaurs Demise), and photo prompts. In addition to Poetry, we had flower seeds for everyone to plant and take home with them. This is always a fun activity that’s different than the usual chips and cookies given out at campus events. I am excited to graduate but I will definitely miss planning fun E&A events!

Today for plant systematics we went to the St. Scholastica greenhouse. It is run by our professor that teachers the class, Jane Wattrus. Today we spent time weeding and cleaning the greenhouse to et it ready for the upcoming semester. It is fun to work with plants and get our hands dirty in the middle of winter!

Start of a New Research Project

Friday, July 17th, 2015

After working on our research for chipmunks for a while now this summer, I have the opportunity to start an individual research project that stems from it. I have decided to do vegetation sampling around the areas we found that the chipmunks live in. I have been working on identifying every plant species found in a 100m square area around the hole they live in. This gives us the ability to compare habitats and see if the chipmunks have a preference of the vegetation they live in. Here is a picture of some of the plants I am working on identifying and the books I use to do so.
