As I type I am surveying my room, thinking about what I will need to pack for our AP Bio field trip tomorrow to the marshes of Palo Alto. Our first field trip as a team, and a field trip I am really excited about. I think that in-class learning is important to teach material and information, but hands-on experiences like field trips add a whole new level of understanding and connection to a subject. I have been with Save the Bay before, and am excited to see what the experience is like as a class.
I want to learn more about the type of research that Save the Bay does, since I know we will be taking soil samples. I’m excited to see what we do, especially since I know we are helping to restore the bay, which is important for maintaining biodiversity and supporting the water sources in the rest of California.
