Our summer field staff have arrived and completed their first two shifts. Both safety training and the establishment shift are over and we are heading into Spring Protocol Training. Both SOP and establishment went well with northern crews establishing terrestrial sites and southern crews completing wetland verification. Crews had a chance to get their feet wet (literally for most people) and work out some of the kinks before spring shift. We are looking forward to spring training and having some staff from RAM down to teach moss and lichen!
