Katie Humason created this video about her D2D group's experience -- the group went from start to finish in two weeks. This video is a great example of what can be done with some photos and video clips!

Over Karen's shoulder on the wall is Pat, our unofficial scientist mascot over the course of the 3-day training at Cedar Creek. The entire group discussed the different types of questions students can come up with while in the field and how they can turn those into testable questions.

Later that day, the monarch group got up close and personal with the different stages of the life cycle. Lesley and Gerri learned how to handle the adults and differentiate males and females. Thanks again to everyone who was able to attend the training!
