Discovery NotesFound behind Gonzaga's library under a tree in winter. Soil was firm due to the the cold January temperatures. The weather upon discovery was 38-32 degrees Fahrenheit. The soil was packed tight and was silt-like. We also dug out our sample from under a bed of grass so we anticipated some organic material to be in our soil.
Naming NotesCashington is a combination of California and Washington - the two states we are from.
