BATH – The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) is offering free children’s programs, Ocean Sunlight: Tiny Plants and the Gulf of Maine, at the Patten Free Library in October.

Kids 4 years old and up are welcome to join KELT’s Education Coordinator, Becky Kolak, on the Wednesdays in October from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. Children will learn about the groovy Gulf of Maine, get up close and personal with tiny phytoplankton, discover the complexities of marine food webs, and explore the darkest corners of the ocean floor.
