This morning was classroom time. We heard a great lecture from Christina and then in the afternoon went out into the field to orient ourselves. Our four mile hike covered rocky ground, sandy ground, some road and very challenging streches of beach that had extremely slippery (and stinky) seaweed washed up on the beach. It was windy of course by the beach and we even had some snow showers. Do you know what stripped the bark off these branches?
