So happy to be working with Trametes versicolor again! It was the first fungus I worked with for a summer project, and I'm remembering that polypores are a pain to isolate. After having trouble finding it, this one was in my backyard #fungi #diybio #mycology #fieldseason
Our Instagram tends to come alive in the summer - when there are great conservation stories to insta! Check out this photo of a native crayfish in the Lake Superior watershed. Lake SWCD manages Lake County’s AIS program though funds received from the State of MN’s AIS Prevention AIS. We look forward to engaging you this summer! Although we are very busy this time of year, please DM us (or call our office) if you’re interested in setting up a site visit or have a question we could help answer. #conservation #swcd #AIS #crayfish #fieldseason #summer
I am so touched by all the kind comments yesterday ❤️When I decided to ramble into cyberspace, I didn’t think it would resonate with so many people! I’m so lucky to have a community that accepts vulnerability ❤️Good news is I am feeling better today, although I may have overexerted myself at work because I was so excited to be outside (also, I accidentally wore my Birks in the field 😅). Often the hardest thing for me to accept with my health is that healing isn’t linear. Just because I feel good today doesn’t mean I will feel good tomorrow. But I always know I’ve got my knitting and a lap kitty if I need to spend a day just being ❤️#mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #disabledmaker #atwork #fieldseason #scientist #mnsummer #bythelake #lakesampling

Spring semester is officially over, so field projects are in full swing! We are doing nest surveys out in the restored grassland area of Panola Mountain State Park, and we are quickly learning behaviors of our birds out there. For example, Eastern Bluebirds are VERY protective of their nest boxes. This male is fighting off a European Starling. Stay tuned to learn more about all we’re doing this summer! •

The snow has gone, the sun is shining and the vegetation is starting to grow - must be the start of our field season! We're starting with installing temperature loggers as part of a comprehensive monitoring project for Atlantic salmon in Hay River. Thanks to the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation for funding this project.

New, old, and refurbished — our GPS-collars are ready to go for another field season. Collaring technology has certainly come a long way since the 1960’s when researchers were using collars that only sent out radio signals and animals had to be tracked with antennae. The GPS technology in our modern collars became available for civilian use in the 1990’s. All of our collars will take locations every 20 minutes and locations will upload to a website every 1-3 hours. That’s how we are able to intensely study where wolves go and investigate why. Battery life is still limiting - on these collars it usually lasts <1-2 years so we cannot follow wolves for their entire lives. Hopefully researchers will succeed in developing ways to recharge collar batteries from the movement of the collared animal…that would open up a lot of possibilities!

Started at 5am but we are on the road! Excited to start this summer adventure of field research with a wonderful friend! #roadtrip #fieldseason
After what feels like a never ending winter, it’s so good to see the field equipment in farm yards ready to go! #fieldseason
Michigan in May: rain, then mist, then more rain, all at 50F. I remain, as always, charmed. It’s kind of nice returning to the same place at the same time year after year. I believe this is how I will always remember Michigan: moody and reserved. #michigan #fieldseason #fieldecology #plantcommunityecology
