Go Earthquest

As an Earthquest (Canada) For The Environment alumna (Field Assistant Trainee 2000) I participated in a biological field survey of the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. It was an overwhelming positive experience. We tented near our field site and conducted flora/fauna surveying as we hiked along the Bruce Peninsula. The Senior Instructor and Field Assistant were welcoming, helpful and skilled. Clearly they loved what they were doing and loved teaching. Participant's health and safety were paramount. Working together as a team to reach the survey goals fostered a spirit of cooperation and created a positive working environment. While there weren't many opportunities to social with residents of the area, the majority of those interactions were positive.

Bat survey

Great experience, the experience of doing the emergence count and hearing them on the unit was super interesting. Seeing the spectrum of the calls was cool too. Would have been nice to have an exercise where you had ten minutes to try to figure out what species the call belongs to then discuss it. Other than that, it was great.

Ethnobotany of Ontario

It was an amazing course. Dave is a phenomenal botanist and he truly knows his plants, birds, and wildlife. He was very meticulous in examining my herbarium specimens and when administering the tests.
