March 31

I went out to the march and was able to identify several species I had never seen at the marsh before. One species that I was able to easily identify was the prostrate cape weed, which was a common yellow flower that I spotted around the march. I spotted a Coyote Brush, as well as several wild carrots. The most common plant I was able to see was the Rib wort Plantain. There were some plant species that I was not able to clearly identify. a couple examples of this is what I thought was a Scarlet Indian Paintbrush, and a Bristly Oxtoungue. I was not able to find the exact species for these two plants, so I went with the closes ID i could come up with.

March 2nd

I went to the march today, and I was able to notice changes as the spring season started. I noticed that red seeded dandelions were more common, as well as three-corned garlic. I saw many ducks, geese, and swans, but I was unable to determine the species because they were so far away. I many Field mustard, as well as Fuller's teasel. I was also able to see a Zebra Jumping Spider on a rock right next to my willow tree. I also saw that others made the same observation which made me think that they are more common in the spring.

week 2, Feb 17

Today I saw green fern, although I wasn't sure what kind of species it was. I saw a plant that looked like bamboo, but I wasn't able to see what type it was. I saw Sunburst Lichens, which was visible on countless trees, which made them look nice.I saw wild Radish, and another fern, but I was not able to identify it.

week 1, Feb 2

I saw several different species of organisms this week. I've seen what I'm sure is a dandelion, and I've seen periwinkles. Several months ago I took pictures of banana slugs and a beetle, although 'm not sure what kind of beetle it was. I took a photo of s white flower, but I did not know what it was.
