Shout-out from the Microbes of Fire


We are learning about micro-organisms that live around the bases of local trees like the Arizona white pine, Douglas Fir, Ponderosa pine, and the quaking aspen. We got to work with various tools such as the dirt corer, scales and microscopes and we are learning more and more each day.

And… message from our team members:

Mom – still alive. See you in a few days. Hi Bentley and Bella.
Hey mom. Hey dad. Hey kitty.
Hey mom, Fritzi and Beo.
Hi mom, hi dad. Still alive. Be back Thursday!
We’re learning a lot this week.
