We took a trip to Gainesville for the Forest Ecology Clinic.We came up the night before since the clinic started so early. We had a great time learning about the plants that will be on the contest. There were mini sessions for all skill levels that taught a variety of topics. I worked on my pacing and compass skills. We had a huge group from our club come up so that was really nice. I had a little insect zoo going on in the main classroom by the end of the day. We are rolling with out insect club too. We have a few new members. We learned aobut insect life cycles, baby and adult forms of insects. We collected some specimen in the fields at Philippe Park.
