Saturday January 30th 2016 we welcomed students from Queen's BIOL202 Diversity of Life class to the Queen's University Biological Station. Accompanying them were 4 BIOL103 students who wished to gain some insights on the Station and field research and course opportunities. The main goal of the trip was to do some benthic invertebrate sampling using Ekman bottom grab samplers, along with some leaf litter sampling with Berlese funnel traps. Eventually we will use the specimens for DNA barcoding and creating a 'Barcoding of Life Database' site unique to BIOL201/202 and QUBS. Leading the trip were Instructor Barb Vanderbeld and TAs Courteny Holden, Mary Hanley, and Erin Suenaga. Assistant Manager Andrew Rodmell set a fire in the lodge and cut holes through the ice.
