Hello friends!!! Wow, 4 weeks of fun already under our belt! This week we kicked off the fun with a trip to the Aquarium! We saw a bunch of aquatic animals, many I had never seen before. Up until Monday I didn’t know much about sea dragons, or even stingrays, but I noticed something interesting while looking at the rays this time.

Cruising into the rest of our week, my team and I explored other species and human impact in East Boston. We went to Piers park, Constitution Beach, and Bell Isle Marsh where we saw animals like Osprey, Spider crabs, and Egrets. Learning about these species made it more evident that there are more species out there that are not as well known as others. As for human impact, being in East Boston itself showcased a lot of gentrification happening locally. We were able to see new and expensive apartments, construction sites, and more parks as a result of this as well. We had a fun-filled week of exploring, and I can’t wait to SEA what week 5 has in store for us!!
