Discovery NotesThis sample was found by the UMass Campus pond. The sample itself was a watery/muddy slur, not a dry soil sample. This pond is a favorite of Canadian geese before they migrate, and feces, urine, and other "geese bodily contaminants" contaminate both the grass around the pond as well as the direct water itself. This sample was collected on 9/14/21.
Naming NotesThe name of Jaclyn Gagnon's cat plus the back half of sushi.
