Blog entries Burning Bush I think we found a Burning Bush. I think we found a Burning Bush because the stem has a small crevice throughout it. It also has two different colors green and brown. The burning bush has multiple stems. One reason why this plant is a burning bush is because, the stem on a burning bush has a crevice and the brown part sticks out. There are small points that come out about every 2 inches. The burning bushes stem doesn’t have many leaves but it does have a pretty good amount. The leaves change from green to pinkish red. They are simple leaves, and are placed opposite from each other. 2017-11-15 flamablepickles 0
Species Cards Burning Bush I think I found the burning bush because I measured the bush and it was about 60 inches or 5 feet tall. It will only grow a few more feet. The Burning Bush slightly bends over like a tree. The Burning Bush has a spread of five to seven feet, and our plant was the same. Our plant looked a lot like the Burning Bush, everything was the same as the description on Vital Signs. After we looked at other examples we decided that it was the Burning Bush. The leaf of a Burning Bush is an oval shape with a pointed tip. It has toothed edges and an opposite leaf arrangement. 2017-11-15 bluebananas 0
Species Cards Sea Potato/Oyster Thief It is a very windy, wet day at Kettle Cove. The waves were coming in fast. We are making our way over the field of seaweed and rocks. It smells like seaweed and was cloudy. I hear the waves crashing. The seaweed is wet and slippery. I find it difficult that I keep slipping on the seaweed. I am surprised that the Sea Potato looks like thin paper or a dried out hollow grape. The Sea Potato is very hard to find and it is buried up at the top of the hill in the back of the seaweed pile. It is windy and looks like it is going to rain soon, but doesn’t end up raining too much. 2017-11-06 The Tater Tots 0

Research reports Invasive Crab Species Search and Identification- Rock Crab Using a bucket, net, and bare hands, the group searched the intertidal and spray zones to find the Rock Crab invasive species. Many of the crabs were found under rocks and wooden planks. They were then catalogued based on visual characteristics to identify them to the correct species. The group also took pictures for more evidence of the species. The Vital Signs field sheet was also used to identify the Rock Crab. The coloration of the Rock Crab made it much easier to identify in a group of Green and Asian Shore Crabs. Out of 48 crabs, only 1 male Rock Crab was found. 2017-10-13 augustmurray 0
