Float samples

We would like to thank Mount Vernon again for allowing us to use their float machine for our soil samples.  CART is saving approximately liter samples of soil from features across the OCPP.  These samples will show seeds and other small fish and animal bones within the different layers of deposits over time.

Kayla and Jonathan use the float tank at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
