Hannah McDonald Eco Rep Quabbin Field Trip Reflection 2 May 2012 I learned a ton of information at the Quabbin Resevoir. Before the field trip, I never even knew it existed, come to find out it supplies water to almost half of Massachusetts. What was most interesting to me is that they took down several towns and evacuated them to build the reservoir. The Quabbin is a useful resource that supplies clean water to many citizens. Restoring the wildlife in the area increased biodiversity. This all relates to what we covered in class because how humans handle their resources is an important part of our environmental society; an area full of clean water and biodiversity is environmentally rich for the animals and the people who live off of it. I would encourage people to go see the reservoir because it is absolutely beautiful and not very many people know where their water comes from. It would provide a

Unformatted text preview: great learning experience for them as it did for me. Attending this fieldtrip did foster a great sense of community within the Eco Rep program. It was nice to meet kids from other clusters, as well as Craig whom I never really knew existed (come to find out that without him I wouldn’t have even been on this field trip!). The walks we took around the area also allowed us to bond and have fun in a peaceful and refreshing area. The only way I would improve the field trip would be to pick a day that isn’t rainy—and that may be hard considering we can’t predict the future—but it would have been nice to see the view from the top of the tower without all the clouds in the way. Thanks for letting me enjoy this experience as an Eco Rep....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
