Bear Creek student studies oceanography

Megan Fleming, who will be in the 11th grade at The Bear Creek School this fall, attended the summer session in marine studies at the Acadia Institute of Oceanography at Seal Harbor, Maine.
   Megan is the daughter of Don and Anne Fleming. She took part in a full field-study of tidal pools, estuaries, salt marshes, sand beaches and off-shore sampling.
   All phases of oceanography are explored. Laboratory facilities provide space and instrumentation for special marine projects.
