Greenville Consolidated School's 7th and 8th grade science classes have created videos to share how the natural resources of their area connect with their community. Click the following videos to watch! 

On Friday, October 1st, MFC students from Greenville had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of the trails at the Nickerson Tree Farm located  at the Moosehead Region Welcome Center in Greenville. This 80 acre piece of property, which was donated to The Forest Society of Maine by Ellen Nickerson Poole in 2018, had been owned and managed by the Nickersons for over 100 years! 


In 2019, Senior Forestland Steward for The Forest Society of Maine, Erica Cassidy Dubois, and Greenville Consolidated teacher, Selena Tardiff facilitated a project to be completed by her Environmental Science class. The students researched the ecology of the Nickerson Tree Farm in order to create interpretive signage for the area. 


Once the signs were placed, and the trail was opened, Greenville’s current 7th and 8th grade students, again as a part of Selena Tardiff’s science class, were able to explore the area and see the wonderful work of Ms. Tardiff’s former students. The 7th and 8th graders had an engaging discussion with the representatives from The Forest Society of Maine, and participated in a scavenger hunt of information based on the signage. 

This community project provided a fantastic opportunity for the students to be introduced to some aspects of their local community’s forested natural resources. Check out this article from The Piscataquis Observer to find out more about the project.
