The Kopp lab went on a springtime hike this Sunday! We explored pine forest at 3,500 feet of elevation near Sly Park. Flexing our entomology muscles, we introduced the youngest lab member to field work. He has a strong interest in the community ecology of rotting logs.

Logan and Gio enjoy lunch together

Leon delegates work to his field crew.

Gio and Ammon share a laugh.

Kopp lab members also appreciate the plant kingdom!

We started playing improvised baseball (or cricket) with pine cones.

That face!
