7th Grade Students Learn About Invasive Species

Morgan Cuthbert explained the purpose of a recent trip to Spear Farm:
HMS Students visit Spear Farm
Kyle Warren, Head Steward of the Royal River Trust, and Ling Rao of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, joined our 7th grade science classes at Spear Farm for a fascinating exploration of invasive species.

Kyle and Ling led walks through the preserve and discussed the importance of the salt marsh, and the sanctuary located at the fresh water pond. The students gained great insight about the process used to identify local invasive species, and the management behind them.
