Two biology majors took the Stone Laboratory Field Zoology course this past summer. Caitlin Duncan (pictured above to the left) wrote:
I had a fantastic experience at Stone Lab! I took a 5 week field zoology class. Every student had to keep a field journal and put together a collection of 100 specimens, which were gathered during various field trips to Green Island, North Bass Island, Middle Bass Island, South Bass Island, and Kelley's Island. Collecting, displaying, and identifying the organisms was the most fun part of the course for me! I even won the 2013 "Mad Collector" award for collecting 150 unique specimens! My class also learned how to electroshock, which was a great experience.Life Science Education/Biology major Emily Lundquist (pictured above to the right) wrote that:
Overall, it was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in my life because it was great to be out in nature every day and I met so many new people and enjoyed spending time on an island. I learned so much that I feel will help me later in life with teaching.The images show a class group shot on the docks at Stone Laboratory and one of the field collections developed in the class.
