KELT and the Patten Free Library offer children’s stories and activities at nature preserves in Bath

BATH – The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) is offering free children’s programs, with the Patten Free Library in May. The two programs will offer spring themed stories and activities for children 6 years old and younger.

It is a splendid opportunity for young children and parents to explore the wonders of nature two Tuesdays from 10:00am to 11:00am. Participants will investigate spring events- wild flowers and tadpoles- through stories, crafts, and outdoor, hands-on exploration. KELT’s Education Coordinator, Becky Kolak, will lead the way!

May 6: Flower Power at Sewall Woods Preserve
May 20: Funny Frogs & Tiny Tadpoles at Thorne Head Preserve

Parents are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the activities. To sign-up, contact the Patten Free Library’s Children’s Room at 443-5141 or These programs are generously sponsored by the Davenport Trust Fund.
