Thank you Abaco!

We wrapped up the MSMC Abaco trip with two very productive days of citizen science! Abaco Central High students measured lots and lots of shells on Thursday. They had a beautiful day to work in the field after a bit of a cold snap. The MSMC team was joined by 10th grade students from Forest Heights Academy and St. Francis de Sales in a thorough survey of a Dundas Town midden for a Friday afternoon. We were really impressed by the level of questions and interest in the information by all of the groups, which ended up being a total of 65 students for those two days. It is plain to see that everyone really enjoys the hands-on nature of the program, and the post-survey discussions about their data and conch conservation. Thanks to the schools and teachers, Mrs. Moss, Mr. Ramotar, and Ms. Borsz, for their support of the program!
