About This Event

Follow a Raindrop and Explore Living Water in Scarborough

Scarborough Land Trust (SLT) and Friends of Scarborough Marsh (FOSM) are celebrating WATER!

SLT will be hosting a summer series for families and children in collaboration with FOSM. Each week will take a close look at water and its important role in the environment. Each session will be 2 hours long, starting at 3 PM and concluding at 5 PM.

Session 2 – Marshlands (Wednesday, August 17)

In this session, we will explore the marshlands of Scarborough at SLT’s Blue Point Preserve. Why are marshes so smelly? How do the tides affect marshlands? We will learn about the biology and chemistry of saltmarshes. Wetlands are so important to animals- especially birds. Bring binoculars! We could see lots of egrets, blackbirds, and many other marsh birds.
Activities include science as well as book readings, crafts, and games.

Along the way, we will be using a refractometer to measure the salinity of the water at each location.

Cost: FREE

Recommended Age: 8 years and older (All children must be accompanied by an adult).

Session 1 – Freshwater (Wednesday, August 10)

Session 2 – Marshlands (Wednesday, August 17)

Session 3 – Ocean (Wednesday, August 24)
