2018 Winter Workshop Wrap Up

We had 71 students and 19 coaches from 12 teams attend the Feb 9 workshop. Maggie Payne taught the soils sessions, Pam Landry taught teams how to use a field guide and how to determine wildlife habitat from aerial photographs, Kelley Freda did water quality and a special session on how to design a rain garden,  Joe Perry’s crews were (of course) loudly enthusiastic identifying and measuring trees, and many folks had fun working with the stream table with Christine Hatch from UMass Extension. MWCC staff were welcoming and easy to work with- a big thanks to Mt Wachusett Community College for hosting us!
