Local Students Pitch in at Seaduck Point Preserve
For the last couple of years MCHT land steward Deirdre Whitehead has been dedicated to building community relations while developing the Seaduck Point Preserve on Beals Island. Those efforts recently culminated in several successful field trips and beach cleanups with the Beals Island school.
Deirdre led the enthusiastic groups down the newly established trail, taking time along the way to point out and discuss the many varieties of moss and lichen which thrive throughout the preserve.
These same intrepid explorers also helped fill and dispose of more than 16 bags of trash collected from the beach. The youngest group spanned from pre-k to fourth grade with the four four-year-olds in attendance successfully completing the one-mile trek from school yard to beach.
