Today was a jam packed day! We not only collected data at two more sites, we also explored the town of Churchill and spent the night at the Prince of Whales Fort. Before heading out to our last two data collection sites we had a delicious breakfast at the CNSC. Out in the field we were efficient. By this point everyone was proficient in their plant identification. After collecting data we ate lunch and took a quick nap on the spongy lichen. After our hike back to the bus we headed into town where our junior ranger friends gave of a tour of all their favorite places. We bought snacks and souvenirs. Later, we took a zodiac to the the fort. We set up our tents, made a fire and played games. We ended the night toasty by the fire watching northern lights and talking.
