Hi, my name is Olivia Snodgrass. I am currently a sophomore here at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse majoring in Biology with concentration in Environmental Science, and minoring in Chemistry. My goal is to eventually do something in the field fo Environmental Science and/or Toxicology.

I am originally from the city of Sun Prairie, located less than five miles from Madison, Wisconsin. I love my hometown and unlike most college kids who want to move as far away from their parents as possible, I want to stay in Sun Prairie as long as I can. Being so close to the capitol always gave me plenty of things to do on the weekends.

When I'm not busy with school and work, I love being with friends, shopping, walking around downtown Madison by the lake, being outdoors, camping, hiking and swimming in the summer. I'm also big into crime shows on TV with Castle and Bones being my two favorites.

 I am creating this webpage for my Orginismal Biology class here at UWL to be used as an informational tool for anybody interested in the California Meadow Vole. I was responsible for the reproduction and interactions topic pages. If you have any questions you can contact me by email at


My name is Ashley Wambach and I am currently sophomore with a Biology-Pre Medical major at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. My hometown is Wind Lake, Wisconsin which is about three hours south east of La Crosse. Wind Lake is about a half hour south of the Milwaukee area. There, I live with my mom, dad, dog, and my brother when he also comes home from school. My brother Alex, who is 22 years old, is also a Biology Major though he attends the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and plans to transfer in fall to continue on a path towards a degree as a Pre-Physician’s assistant.

            Before attending college I was a competitive club gymnast from the age of 5 to 18 and traveled the country competing for my club. Gymnastics was a true passion of mine next to my school work and instead of competing at the college level I chose to focus on my studies.

            I am responsible for the habitat and form and function pages of our website. If you have any more questions or comments you may contact me through my school email I hope you enjoy our page about the California Meadow Vole as much as we have enjoyed putting this web page together!
