Talking trash

Scientists working at Sapelo have not always managed to clean up after themselves. Schoolyard teacher Mary Beth Hannon and Steve Pennings took a break from collecting data on plant communities to clean up part of a long-abandoned experiment at airport marsh. We won't name and shame the scientist who left it here (not part of our beloved LTER family!), but with more and more attention being paid to work in the Georgia marshes, it is important for us all to clean up in the future when our experiments are finished.
