You've been watching tough. I'll meet my name's price. He'll squat out. See you at the top of the hill with Are you serious? All of the season, he'll My name's Beth Lang. I'm majoring in environmental studies in biology. I'm from Eldersburg, Maryland, and my Capstone Project was looking at restoring Singleton Matthews Farm. So my project started last semester when I came out here with a partner and identified as many tree species. That's we could out here to get a baseline of what was already here. And then we also use camera trap data to figure out which animals were here. And the camera trap is a little camera that we attached to a tree, and it takes a picture when an animal walks by it. So some of the species that are commonly found here we saw in the camera trap data. There's a lot of deer. There was red fox, rabbit, ground hog, a lot of squirrels, possums and raccoons. I started doing research on what ecosystem restoration is how to do it, what to consider when planning for it, and I researched what the ecosystem here could be. There's already a lot of oak trees. The mammals that are here are very characteristic of an oak hickory forest, So to make the farm better, what we would do is plant more species that are typical of oak hickory forest, like more oak trees, hickory trees and try to increase habitat. And one of the main goals is to increase connectivity, so there's a lot of forest over there that's not part of the farm. So by increasing the size of the forest on the farm, we're making the habitat bigger. We're making it easier for animals to transition from area to area, which makes it easier for them to reproduce so it could increase their population size and make the overall area healthier. So the work I did last semester identifying the tree species and animal species have already here. We use and applied to the restoration project that we're doing with their conservation biology class for a final. So so far for the restoration, What we've gotten done is a bunch of clearing the land. So it took a bunch of machetes and chopped down all the thorns and vines, and now we have to dig up a lot of the roots, and then after we do that, we're gonna go by our plants, depending on which area you have, depends on which plants are gonna be planting, and another goal in restoring the farm is to make it better for people to. So Singleton Matthews Farm was donated to make Daniel, and then McDaniel bought part of it from Johns Hopkins and Dr Singleton. When he left his part of the farm to Hopkins, he wanted the farm to be used like an academic retreat. So for academic a treat, what we would do is we're planning on putting camping sites in about one into the field so the students and faculty can camp out here and get closer to nature. And then we're also considering agriculture that may be students, create involved with and just be a fun place for students to come and hang out on the weekends, especially This is McDaniel College. We call it the Hill, and it's a place where you're constantly climbing, moving forward and upward with every step you climb, your perspective shifts, reframing things you knew or thought you knew. With each new idea, new friend, new mentor interests are sparked, passions are ignited and your point of view is elevated. Revealing more possibilities than you ever imagined is why McDaniel is a place where doubling and tripling majors is not the exception. It's practically the rule because the hill is a place of stairs and intersections. The more steps you climb, the more paths you cross. The more people you find to challenge you, lift you up and send it soaring, reaching you. You always since you could do seeing clearly thinking freely, coming that any challenge, like a green terror that's you My name is Naji Banks, and my senior capstone is performing in hair. The musical is pretty interesting. Thio work in a show that was supposed to be in the late sixties and on the verge of, you know, the seventies, being in that era and trying to fit the embodiment of that staying conscious of that era. Not really thinking about the eighties and nineties, and there'll be thousands of where we are now. I had to sort of that time. Travel would sort of think of myself in the seventies without knowing the future, and that was sort of a weird thing. To keep in my head is the character the whole time. It was pretty interesting that try to see how far I can push myself into getting into character. That was kind of far outside of myself, to be able to put on a good performance with singing, even though I graduated high school, not knowing that I could sing dancing, even though it kind of graduated high school, not really knowing that I could dance, but I had rhythm and acting, which I had never done before, but I had written a play before in middle school, and that was like the gist of it. Wait Atlantic stole from the rich. I've made a lot of friends and family from attending my Franklin Square Boys and Girls Club. Mr. Bora. Oh, my gosh, She cared about all of those kids and no, she wanted to do was spread a great message after graduation. Hopefully grad school. Then I hope to eventually open up an after school program and after school arts programs. I guess seeing something that special for like, a lot of kids happened. I kind of want to give that toe like a community somewhere, if not a lot of communities. I guess I'll have to settle for one community. But the overall effect is that sort of just give people a place to after school express themselves. I'm thanking my friends, my handling on this wonderful atmosphere. McDaniel College. I'm thankful for my family, my friends. Thank you for my family and the opportunity. I'm thankful for McDaniel College for being a great school for my fans. Happy holidays.
