In the realm of Things That Are Not The Internet... tomorrow I will watch two months of my sweat, blood, and elbow grease
My primary work site of June and July was Kealakomo Waena, an experimental kipuka where we are attempting to determine whether we can successfully suppress alien shrubs and encourage native pili grass via controlled burns. My fellow intern slaves and I spent hours in the sun at KW running transects, measuring cover, shrub density, biomass, and fuels, checking on the vigor of marked shrubs, etc. Tomorrow we get to watch from the top of a cliff while the fire guys BURN THE FUCKER DOWN.
I am excite.
