A family friendly event, join Maine Master Naturalists Davida Sky and Kiya Smith to experience seaweeds – how they grow and how they fit in the coastal ecological system. With a vast variety of types, shapes, sizes, and colors, seaweeds can tell a coastal visitor much about the marine habitat in which they are found. Participants will learn to preserve seaweed specimens and create seaweed art.

A rain or shine event, the program is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly encouraged and any questions can be directed to Becky Kolak at 442-8400 or This program was generously sponsored by the Merrymeeting Bay Trust.
