MCAP Field School, Week 7: Beginning of the end   Leave a comment


Today we began the several-day long process of closing up the site. We have some documentation to finish, but we now have three units officially backfilled. Backfilling is always bittersweet.

You spend weeks carefully excavating a square area in very small increments. . .

Dr. Peres collecting some final samples before the unit is backfilled.

only to throw all the dirt back in in a matter of an hour or so.

Backfilling in progress.

There is much more of this in our very near future! We are looking forward to slightly cooler temps tomorrow (high of 87 instead of 97) and the closing up of several more units.

In the meantime, here is a honey bee doing its thing in my backyard over the weekend.
