Wetland ecology at Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology – Last Day
and canoe trip down French Creek. The weather was incredible for all three weeks of the course. The only rain occurred while we were in the classroom…until today. Sadly, the canoe trip had to be cancelled. Of course, this being a wetlands course, a little rain would not have stopped the students from enjoying the river and learning a bit about riparian conservation. However, the threat of thunderstorms required that we call off the trip.
Teaching this course was a blast; in fact I consider it one of the highlights of my teaching career. The class was filled with a really great group of students, and I enjoyed getting to know them all. They are now truly “wetlanders,” and I wish them all the best of luck in whatever life has in store for them next.
We learned a lot…but we also had a lot fun, as indicated by the pictures below.
