Earthwatch Expedition to Andora

This past July 10 MUHS students, along with Mr. Pallis and Ms. Manley, traveled to the Country of Andorra on an Earthwatch expedition. While in Andorra the students and teachers took part in a citizen science project, focusing on the impacts of climate change on the plants and animals of the Pyrenees Mountains. Activities included planting over 900 trees, the measure and banding of birds and small mammals, collecting insects, measuring soil microbe activity, and collecting trail camera images. Students also got a day off to explore the capital city of Andorra La Vella. It was an amazing travel, cultural and learning experience. If you are interested in being part of a similar project, please see Mr. Pallis or Ms. Manley for more information.
