This week we took some of our participants from last year's MERO group out on a reunion hike at Windy Hill Open Space Preserve. It was a lot of fun to get back out in the field with these familiar faces!
Having a picnic dinner looking out over the Bay. Sure missed those ham and cheese sandwiches we make every week!
Got a flat driving back to the school, so we got the chance to teach the students how to change a tire! Building those important life skills is what we're all about!
Welcome to La Mera Ciencia, the official blog of Menlo-Atherton Ecology Research Outdoors (MERO). Founded in 2017, MERO is a free, after-school environmental education program for high school English Language Learners that gets students outside doing ecology. Mero (or mera for feminine words like ciencia) is Spanish for "legit" or "the real thing", which is exactly the kind of science we do in the MERO program!
