Only 6 weeks until the Brosi Lab is back out at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory! We had our first big team meeting this week, and we’re excited for the new folks who are joining us this year. UW undergraduate student Kyra Woytek and Northeastern undergraduate student Manogya Chandar are joining the team, in addition to entering PhD students Chris Anderson and Madeleine Strait. RMBL veterans Kaysee Arrowsmith, Therese Lamperty, and Annie Schiffer will be leading the team this season, along with Berry, who will be joining later in the summer.
Since the snowpack in Colorado was quite low this year, we anticipate that the snow will melt out earlier than normal. Kaysee and Therese will head out first in early May to set up sites and catch the few early pollinators, until the rest of the team arrives in early and mid-June. We’re looking forward to the 2021 RMBL season!
