Working Together to Build a Field Station



     Part of our responsibilities when arriving in Nova Scotia was to assist the Primary Investigators in continuing to contruct a field station. Our daily schedule begins when we arrive at the site, Cook's Lake. The first things that we need to do is to check our traps from the night before. We then will do a variety of tasks - surveying for field signs, constructing GPS maps, or construction on the field station. I chose to assist in the building.

     The other teams this past year have constructed a lot of the station... our job was to put the finishing touches on the construction, as you can see in the video.
