KELT offers children’s activities about insects at the Patten Free Library

BATH – The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) is offering free children’s programs, Insects in the Estuary, at the Patten Free Library in May. The four part series will offer insect themed stories, speakers, and activities.

It is a ‘bug-apalooza’ for kids 4 years old and up on the Wednesdays in May from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. Children will learn about arthropod anatomy, nurture their inner entomologist (a scientist who studies insects) to develop bug ID skills, explore the interdependence of bugs and humans, and discover the intricacies of local moth and butterfly behavior.

May 1 What makes an insect…an insect?

The programs take place in the library’s Children’s Room and parents are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the activities. These programs are generously supported by the Davenport Trust Fund. The Patten Free Library is located at 33 Summer Street in Bath. For more information, please visit or call 207-442-8400.
