Kingston will be my home for the next couple of years as I complete a master's of science in geography. Officially I start this autumn, but I received a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) award that is allowing me to get a jump start on my research and data collection.
So far I have been doing a literature review with a handful of field days. This week I was testing field equipment in advance of my field season later this summer. Best to make sure everything works now instead of finding it out when you need it in the field.
After a bit of a hiatus to get adjusted to a new routine in a new place, I am excited to continue to share my flora finds and other outdoor adventuring with you all! That said, the range of my explorations has expanded and shifted beyond the Peterborough area, so now the name PTBO Flora seems limiting. I have been thinking about how best to reimagine this site to make it more reflective of my new scope of exploration.
As always, I am open to suggestions.
