Will sample up to ten locations of common mullein to look at pollinator communities. Therefore I would like to be out in these populations as the plants begin to bolt and would continue to monitor these populations until first frost. This would include going out during the day to make visual observations of the different populations and collecting insect samples in the morning. I would like to tag individual plants and flowers, but I would also love to place pollination bags on a subset of the flower stalks for the course of the season.
For a subset of these populations, I am also hoping to harvest plant tissue from mullein and collect root sampling (using methods I used in the Open Spaces last summer).
I will work with land managers and Jeffrey Boring to select specific sampling locations. More detailed descriptions of my sampling protocols can be found in the attached documents.
Insurance policy for $1,000,000 has already been submitted from CSU to Connie Ellis at Risk Management.

Comments: Continue to coordinate in advance of beginning field work with Casey Cisneros (Weed Specialist at 217-8417) for locations of mullein. Work with Jeffrey Boring (679-4569) to get a research vest and wear it for the duration of their research when in the field. Avoid weekend days. Yield to all trail users and explain that a special event permit was received for this project and the purpose, etc.. The applicant will provide a final report and presentation of results at the depts request. The applicant must stay on trail whenever possible and practice leave no trace ethics when off trail.
Comments: yes, I do have a cert of ins from csu on file. However, the GL coverage expires in just about 1 month....you will need to get a renewed one to me before 7/1/13 for GL of $1m AND listing LC as additional insured AND describing this specific event (with dates).
