Watershed history and habitat explorations

A newly installed Conservation Commission kiosk features “Watershed History and Habitat Explorations” by the 6th grade science class at the St George School. Under the guidance of teacher Allison England, the students produced GIS maps along with stories and images relating to community changes in the landscape around the marsh. These include reference to a home fuel oil leak that led to the Tenants Harbor Water District and information about the historic roads running through the watershed.   Come see their descriptions of travel in the upper parts of the marsh, their beautiful artwork and poetry and learn about alewives and elvers.  The kiosk is located at the entrance to the marsh and was built with the support of Blueberry Cove 4-H Camp. —Les Hyde
