MESA goes fishing for salmon and brook trout

The students of MESA had an eye opening day with the Greater Lovell Land Trust and the Kezar Lake Watershed Association. Tom Henderson and Ed Poliquin led the group on a walking tour of Great Brook in Lovell, Maine. While we were unsuccessful spotting spawning salmon, we saw some redds and some amazing waterfalls. Tom and Ed enlighten the group how landlocked salmon travel up Great Brook and are able to lay their eggs in the fall. Students were thoroughly engaged for most of the trip and peppered Tom and Ed with many questions. Many thanks to the GLLT and the KWLA. MESA looks forward to working with you again.

MESA students got more information than they could have ever imagined from the Greater Lovell Land Trust and the Kezar Lake Watershed Association. Here, Ed Poliquin of the KWLA, answers one of the many questions posed. 

Behold...the outside classroom!


Tom Henderson, of the Greater Lovell Land Trust, takes one of many moments, taking questions, as well as posing some of his own.
