10:00 am – 11:00 am at the Abbe Museum in downtown Bar Harbor. Join Museum Educator George Neptune in an activity that teaches participants Passamaquoddy animal names. “Passamaquoddy names are very unique,” explains Neptune. “They often describe things like purpose or location. In the case of animal names, most describe the animal’s actions or behaviors.” Participants will take part in a matching game, after which they can pick their favorite animal to color.
