SCB night swamp walk - DBS

Published: 09/17/2014

On the warm night of September 16, 18 students and 4 DBS faculty and staff explored a wetland in Tuskegee National Forest. Led by Ecology Coordinator Shawn Jacobsen, we found reptiles, amphibians, fish, spiders, and many other invertebrates during our several-hour exploration of a bottomland forest and associated ponds. Black-lighting arranged by Entomology M.S. student (and former SCB President) Scott Clem brought in a large number of insects: during the trip representatives from over 30 insect families were found. Overall a great learning experience for students interested in Alabama’s biodiversity!
