First Year Experience Kibbe Research Station Field Trip, October 2012
October 6 station director Dr. Jenkins and station manager Jim Lamer showed Dr. Ribbens' botany FYE class the Kibbe Research Station, and took us on a boat ride on the Mississippi, including doing some fish electroshocking. These are some pictures from the day. Thanks, Sean and Jim!
