Our team includes researchers from across central and eastern U.S. (and even one who person who lives in the UK), so every year we meet somewhere for a week to work together. This year, we met at the Archbold Biological Station (http://www.archbold-station.org/) in Venus, FL.
|Lake Annie on the Archbold Biological Station property. The Director, Dr. Hilary Swain, |
took our group there one evening to tell us about the Station and this really unique FL lake.

We also had fun getting to know everyone, including our new team members. Below are a couple of pictures from our mid-week half-day excursion kayaking on Fisheating Creek, which flows into Lake Okeechobee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisheating_Creek). We saw SO many spiders, snakes, and vultures!
Note added 1/31/14: One of the CSI Limno grad students, Samantha Oliver, also blogged about our week in FL. Check her great post out: http://limnology.wisc.edu/blog/csi-limnology-team-building-crucial-for-team-science/
