Arrival in Cherry Hill
Hi everyone! I left from JFK airport this morning and arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia to meet the other members of my research team. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, but a bit colder than in New York. We drove two hours south to a small town called Cherry Hill where we will be staying. There are 7 other women, you can check out their blogs too! Some of them are also teachers, and we all have something different to share with the group. We are all interested in the environment and learning about wild animals, even if that means getting our hands dirty! We met the scientists, Chris and Christina, who are really interesting and know a lot about the animals that live around here. They also have a dog named Lycos (which means wolf). They said we may see river otters, deer, porcupine, mink, and hare. We will learn tomorrow about how to look for signs of animals in the field. I'm excited to give you news soon!
