Join Friends of Sears Island for a fun-filled family nature program with Ashley Megquier on Sunday, June 12th from 10am-12:30pm. Parents and their kids will learn about various habitats on Sears Island through educational games, stories, and hands-on exploration. This interactive adventure will be much like a mini day-camp for the whole family. Ashley is FOSI’s Outreach Coordinator, as well as an experienced environmental educator, camp director, after-school program manager, mother, and artist, who enjoys any opportunity to share nature with children.
This event is free and designed for children ages 4-10 and their parents or caregivers, who must stay for the program. Families are invited to pack a picnic lunch to eat on the beach at the end of the event. Sears Island is on Sears Island Road off Route 1 just east of Searsport. Participants should park along the causeway at the end of the road and meet at the kiosk near the island gate by 10:00 am. Please wear footwear appropriate for hiking and beachcombing, clothing suitable for the weather and insects, and bring water, a snack, and insect repellent. Please no pets on guided walks.
