2009: Spring Semester
How I spent my time….
April 3, 2009
I took a walk with Vince and he showed me where some trees were and what kind they planted and why. He went into a big detail about identifying Buckthorn and gave me a minor test on identifying it. After that we dug up several very large bushes or trees of buckthorn on a hill side.

Today was a tree planting, garbage removal, and buckthorn removal event. It was sponsored inpart because of Earth Day. Unfortunately, I did not get many hours in or much work because shortly after it began it started to downpour.

Today I Met Vince at the Riverview dorms. We walked around to see where good places would be to plant new trees the following weekend. Also, I took pictures for my project and talked with him about his knowledge of the deep tunnel, water issues of the Milwaukee River/ RiverWest, and also the strengths and weaknesses of the area.
