I was especially grateful for the chance to dabble in field methods. I love fieldwork but rarely get to participate in it myself. From scouring for insects and benthic invertebrates to trying our hand at telometry, I was engaged at every turn, said AIP student & teacher Nessa Goldman (pictured) of her Earth Expeditions course in Paraguay. Goldman's Paraguay course counts toward her Miami University Advanced Inquiry Program master's degree, which she's earning online with field study also at her AIP Master Institution, Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo. http://www.thenaturenanny.com/blog #IEW2019 #ProjectDragonfly #MiamiOH #EarthExpeditions #EEParaguay
