Hi peeps!

I will be posting from Stone Labs in a couple of weeks on my Aquatic Biology course! My blog is called aquabio.

I checked out some of the other blogs, and they look great! I'm looking foreward to this journalism experience (a first for me). :-)

Who wants to go fishing?!

Hey, it's me, OSU Nature Gal! Come check out my blog as I tell you about my week of fishing at Stone Lab. If you see the picture that Daniella posted, you can see me with my monster walleye (29 inches! That's almost half as long as I am tall!) kneeling in the front row on the far right. I just posted some helpful hints on coming to Stone Lab and I will be posting pictures soon!

Go Bucks!
