I will use this blog to keep track of my Science Fair project online. I currently have two transects in Mission Trails Regional Park, one in the area that burned in July 2014, and one a nearby unburned area. The habitat I am working in is Coastal Sage Scrub. I will keep track of the amount and type of new seedlings that grow in the burned vs. the unburned area. At home I am also doing another study which involves planting seeds of native plants such as CA Buckwheat, Artemisia, and White Sage. I am planting these native seeds in two different soils from the park, one soil is burned and the other is unburned. I will look germination rates and also what the seedlings look like.
I am doing my project with my mom and Ranger Axtmann from Mission Trails Regional Park.
