On Saturday ...

On Saturday, VMNH Paleontology Technician Lucy Treado and entomologist Aryanna James (former VMNH intern), explored Eggleston Falls and the Rhododendron Trail in Ridgeway, Virginia to collect some macroinvertebrates for the museum's Wild Watersheds exhibit. Perhaps tethering themselves to their pups was not the most effective collection method, nor the most conducive way to photograph the work outing, but they were successful in gathering a few specimens...and their dogs seemed pretty content! Spotting a few millipedes and spending a gorgeous day along the water were both added bonuses for a successful collection trip!
