Nature Explorers

MattRec and the Marion Natural History Museum partnered for the second year to provide “Nature Explorers” summer program. The students explored several different locations around Mattapoisett this year.  We visited Land Trust property off Mattapoisett Neck Road and Bob Field gave us a tour of his Oyster farming operation. We visited salt marshes, went crabbing, netted many fish at Reservation beach, Aucoot Beach, and Ned’s Point.   Thanks to the Mattapoisett Harbor Master’s office we received a tour of the harbor as a final wrap up to the week.  The Nature Explorers group wishes to thank Bob Field for the fun visit, Harbormaster Jill Simmons, and Jim Sullivan for the wonderful tour of the harbor, and the Mattapoisett Land Trust for the use of their property.
