Steve Sentoff and Olympic Mathiaparanam presented to BioCommons students about opportunities in the Preserve for them and provided maps, information on volunteering, field trips and student grant opportunities. Steve also acquainted them with using iNaturalist to record observations in the Preserve. A small exhibit about the Preserve, and possibly a digital slideshow are planned for the display case in BioCommons, which was installed to honor Lillian Tong when she retired from WISCIENCe.
The BioCommons, located at UW-Madison's Steenbock Library, is a community space for undergraduates interested in the biological sciences. Here students find services tailored to their unique needs and get help navigating the wide array of biology options. Undergraduates from across campus come here to start projects, share ideas, or just hang out with the plants and fish and play a game with friends. The Friends efforts to acquaint students with the Preserve will bring them out into natural biological environments so close to them.
