Sunny Day on the Artificial Wetland

For an ecology class, my group is looking at the role of seed-predation in relation to distance to water.  We are doing our project on St. Lawrence University's artificial wetland and Saturday was a really perfect end to day.  We didn't find a difference between the seeds that were closer to the water being eaten or the ones further away for this particular day!  Added some photos to show how nice a day this really was, especially with the river no longer being flooded from all of the recent rain.
