Dr. McRoy traveled to Cold Bay, Alaska with 5 Barrow High School students, a science teacher, and a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist. The trip was part of a ecological field trip to Izembek National Wildlife Refuge to address eelgrass bed ecology.
At Izembek Lagoon, Dr. McRoy worked with the students and showed them the eelgrass beds. Students learned how to collect eelgrass samples and process them.
