|On the boat to Mt Edgcumbe|
Induction week is packed full of things to do for our new students and is a mix of serious activities and admin as well as some more fun activities (quizzes, days out, drinks receptions....).
Today marked the annual outing to Mt Edgcumbe on the Cornish side of the Tamar. Many thanks to Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park for giving us permission to go there and do our surveys.
There, we organised activities for groups of students based around the OPAL surveys.
|Conservation Biology students monitoring water quality by looking at invertebrates present in the pond|
|Biological Sciences students monitoring soil|
|The interminable wait for water and mustard to drain into a worm pit|
|Identifying leaf litter invertebrates in a patch of woodland.|
