West Virginia-Spring 2017 Some photos of our trip to the beautiful Canaan Valley of West Virginia. Meghan and Chelsea in action collecting a peat core. Mitzy looks on as Meghan and Chelsea do the hard work. Mitzy Schaney explaining the particulars of peatlands. Getting across the fens required some creativity. Thanks to the beavers for the handy dam to cross the stream. Meghan enjoying her day in the fen. Notice she is a bit wet after her leg sunk up to the top of her boot. Chelsea in the field. Jumping on the corer to get that last little bit of peat. All for one, and all for coring. Mitzy, Meghan, and Chelsea logging the core. Taking in the view from Bear Rocks.
