Elfin Woods Walk for Children

May 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Friends of Sears Island for a guided nature walk for families on Wednesday, May 15, at 4:00pm on Sears Island. Cloe Chunn, Maine Master Naturalist, will lead children to the Western Shore Trail, where they will examine tiny worlds on Sears Island with a magnifying glass. They will learn about mosses, lichens, and more, in a forest that feels like a magical land where elves and fairies might dwell! This program is being offered in conjunction with Friends of Sears Island’s “Tiny Worlds” activity kits that are also available to reserve this month. Families who sign up for both the nature walk on Sears Island and the activity kits can pick up their activity kits on Sears Island on May 15th at the end of the nature walk.

This program is intended for children ages 5-12 with an accompanying adult. Pre-registration for this program is required. To sign-up, email outreach@friendsofsearsisland.org. Registered participants should park along the causeway at the end of Sears Island Road and meet at the picnic tables just beyond the island gate by 4:00pm. Bring water, a snack, insect repellent, and come dressed for a walk in the woods. Pets are not permitted at this program. This event is part of Science Squad, FOSI’s environmental education program for children, which is supported by First National Bank.
