United Tribes NewsSampling the Scientific Process
26 July 2012
FIELD WORK: Tribal Environmental Science student Sichangu Lee (Cheyenne River) demonstrates how to collect a soil sample July 10 during Nature Camp for secondary students visiting United Tribes. He was illustrating steps in the “scientific process.” The work offered an opportunity to describe his current research project: sampling soil and vegetation characteristics around rattlesnake dens. Lee’s comparative study matches findings between locations on the west and east sides of the Missouri River in south-central North Dakota. Much to everyone’s comfort, this tutorial sample was taken at a site on the UTTC south campus, in no proximity to a snake den.
