Experiential learning. It is what we are all about. MESA goes beyond "hands on".

On Monday, November 4th, MESA travelled to two streams, a wetland, and beach. We started biking to Regis and Weston Brook and explored habitat created by the streams. Students were able to notice the differences in flow, width, erosion, and flora. From there, we pedaled to the end of Indian Head Point Road (Island Road) to the wetlands and the old bridge that once took travellers to Denmark. Because we made decent time, we were able to walk into Indian Head Point Beach where we sat on volcanic rock. 

Through this trip, MESA students should have a great grasp of the Saco River Watershed and how the Saco has changed the landscaped and continues to do so.
