Just a quick note to say that our second field expedition last week was a resounding success! We had 12 people in the field, and our volunteer researchers worked as an excellent team. They came from California State University - Los Angeles, California State University - Northridge, California State University - Fullerton, California Lutheran University, and from the private sector! This season's work was focused on small mammals, and leading our team was Dr. Jim Ryan of Hobart & William Smith Colleges in New York. Dr. Jim was an amazing asset to our work, and we had a great time executing our first study of our area's animal biology.
Here are a couple of pictures to whet your appetite! More to come in the form of guest blogs and pictures in the next few days.
