Join Molly Mauer, a University of Maine at Farmington student working as an Maine State Aquarium intern this summer, at the Hendricks Head Beach, Southport for an intertidal scavenger hunt. She will be conducting a scavenger hunt to educate attendees about local marine organisms, a program that she created and successfully implemented last summer.
Participants will locate and learn about mollusks, crustaceans, echinoderms and more, and a beach seine will be conducted as well. Be sure to come prepared with appropriate footwear for the muddy, sandy, and slippery environment. Water shoes will be provided for younger children, as well as nets, shovels, and collection containers. There are no bathroom facilities at the premises, so please plan accordingly.
Molly hopes to see you, your family members and friends at the following times: Thursday Aug. 2, 9:30 a.m.; Tuesday, Aug. 7, 1:30 p.m.; Tuesday, Aug. 14, 8 a.m.; and Thursday, Aug. 16, 9:30 a.m.
