Pontchartrain Park by lunch

That's what we are shooting for. Finishing a 2-week task in less than 1/2 the time. And our process is getting better, and we have the capacity now to enlist more volunteers.

The graduate team (9 students) and my research assistant Christiana are headed to a field station at Harris Playground. The idea came from Sarah, a graduate student co-leader. She brought it up casually as a way to reduce the back and forth between Pontchartrain Park and our operations center at UNO. I didn't think it was something we'd operationalize for a couple days. I don't think it was something that Sarah thought would happen immediately either. But here it is.

We have a few bumps getting started this morning, due to transport coordination with 2-3 students from the undergraduate team who will be joining us today and traffic(!) on New Orleans freeways. Hopefully, we can finish the neighborhood by noon and get started on Gentilly Woods, the neighborhood just south of Pontchartrain Park.
