As the semester wrapped up, the NLD lab members stepped out of the lab and into nature to celebrate our achievements. Our day began with a refreshing hike, surrounded by the natural beauty of waterfalls and wildlife, including a serene encounter with a family of deer. The highlight of our adventure was a visit to Dr. Woltering’s garden, where we were treated to an exclusive tour of his  palm collection, showcasing a variety of species and his deep passion for plants!
