The Humor of Working in the Field

Due to the nature of our business here at Westervelt Ecological Services we tend to spend a fair amount of time in the field.  On a daily basis, our crew can be found, trudging along through fields and sloughs – mapping, monitoring and mowing along the way.  It’s not the most glamorous job, but it has its perks…and well….its pitfalls too!
The bugs can be big and pesky!  Bug spray is always recommended, but be careful not to get carried away.

Depending on the site and the season, sometimes you get stuck in the mud.

Unfortunately, when dealing with habitat, you may encounter some invasive species.

You have to be ready for any kind of weather and it can be unpredictable.

And if while you are working in the field you discover your lunch has been carried away by ants, don’t worry, just look for the nearest blackberry vine to snack on.
