<< This morning I took a group of 9th and 10th grade students out for a little
seining. I have been working with them for the past couple of weeks
assessing the health of the Segreganset River. The "Seggie" is part of the
Taunton River Watershed located in southeastern Massachusetts.

Excellent. I recall taking a friend's two sons collecting about a dozen
years ago; it was something they probably would have never otherwise been
exposed to. Now one just graduated from college and the other is about to
start. They still collect today and take the older ones fiancee; it is
probably one of the few activities they can do together without constant
sibling fighting! :> It is rewarding to have them tell me stories about
what they caught and what they saw on their last trip.
