Time for Big Mike to ask...."what the heck is that?"

posted Oct 10, 2014, 7:57 PM by Jotham Oliver

MESA hopped on the bikes again and we visited Bear Paw. This was time for a test. As always, students were given the answers by Dr. Cline, and then they took a practicum.

On that note.... 

A large part of what Tin Mountain is all about is educational outreach. It is a good bet that if you've had a child in the Mount Washington Valley, that he or she has had some sort of educational programming from Tin Mountain Conservation Center. 

Take a brief moment this weekend and show some support to TMCC. Sure, a thank you letter with five or ten bucks, is always appreciated, but how about something like a phone call or email of support for TMCC educational programming to a school administrator or board member. 

The MESA program of the Fryeburg school district has been blessed to have seen Dr. Cline every week that we have had school. Whether we have gone to TMCC or out and about at the Major Greg Sanborn Wildlife Management area or the Saco or the classroom, or at the greatest classroom around, Bear Paw, TMCC has been there teaching MESA students about the most important thing you can learn about in education, forest succession (Cline's mantra). Entering Year Three of MESA, our returning students are truly getting the big picture Cline is trying to convey. MESA students love biking to Bear Paw. 

Bear Paw is a great place for students to escape Google. From cirques to sustainable forestry practices to bear dens to beaver meadows, there is plenty for students to connect with.
