Yep, I'll be there with my lab this summer (the badass "Drew Crew" - see website in Press/Media), and while I'll be going to at least 2 field sites on my own, for the majority of them I'll be with my labmates and PI! We all have our own projects but we definitely help each other out, provide moral support, and nerd out together when someone gets good data. :) Thanks for contributing!!
