University of Vermont students are core sampling on frozen Lily Pad Pond at Camp Johnson. The goal is to reach below six inches of ice, 10-12 feet of water and into a 30 foot thick layer of peat bog. In this peat bog they have found pollen spores and remnants of plants dating back over 10,000 years.
