Well, it’s already the 22nd of September, and we are wrapping things up here in Boise, Idaho. The pressed specimens need to be affixed to their respective pieces of paper, and the labels need to be typed, printed, and glued in place nicely. In addition to this exhilarating office task, we have been entering, analyzing, and organizing the data required for a GIS layer that will have points for every Habitat Assessment Framework (HAF) transect for our field office that has been entered into our Access database since the beginning of time. This has proven to be a bit tedious, but rewarding once we looked at the (almost) complete Excel file ready to be converted to a practical, all-encompassing GIS layer. Well that sure was boring; let’s look at some pictures of some stuff that relates to the bad title that only fans of The Decemberists will (maybe) understand. Here are some hazards that we have faced with poise and bravery throughout our rather varied internship:

Thanks for reading and until next(the final) time.
