Sweeping vegetation for terrestrial arthropods as part of the Northern Biodiversity Program survey during 2010.  The location is the Skeleton
Creek Valley, located just above Lake Hazen on northern Ellesmere Island, and you can see Lake Hazen in the background. 
Vegetation is particularly lush in these creek valleys, especially compared to surrounding tundra.
