Caspers reports are so far beyond ordinary that they can be intimidating . How
could anyone equal a report like that ? Was there a base left untouched ? Not
that I can think of .Admitedly its not very polished but then apple polishers
are a dime a dozen . His craving to know the unknown and his wonder in
seeing the unseen takes us right into the creek with him . To me , getting the
kids involved takes it to the ultimate level . Get some cameras Casper . Id
sure like to go to one of your future lectures . As for those who havent given
a report I would enjoy the most basic : I went out to blank creek and
collected/sampled/saw blank fishes etc ...Just the simplest report is worth
recording for future naturalists . Even a report that says I went to the creek
and didnt see anything is important ...maybe the most important .
