A Week of Field Trips for Class 3-4

What a week… so far! Tuesday’s weather didn’t dampen spirits but only enhanced Acadia’s dramatic, rugged coast. The Abbe Museum was engaging, and we especially enjoyed speaking with a Penobscot tribal member about her culture.

Terra Optima continues to be a magical farm experience— our Wednesday field trip. Farmer Cheryl runs the kind of farm we all imagine with beloved animals treated with dignity and care—a great experience.

On Thursday, we through-hiked Ragged Mountain garnering views of Penobscot Bay to MDI and Isle Au Haut to a veiled Mount Washington. On Friday we’re off to Bath and the Maine Maritime Museum for their “How to Build a Wooden Vessel” program. After the program, we’ll have time to explore the museum further. I believe alewives are still striving to reach the top of the Damariscotta Mills Fish Ladder and a stop there to cheer them on is still on the itinerary. What a week indeed!
