When: Saturday, August 12 at 12:00pm

Where: Schulten Farm in Woolwich

Kids and families are invited to have a picnic lunch and enjoy an afternoon of outdoor fun. Join local naturalists and volunteers to fly kites, learn and practice geocaching, and explore ponds, fields, and forests!

KELT is grateful to landowners, Mike and Betsy Fear, for generously welcoming KELT and families for this Day of Play! Located just off the northern shoreline of Nequasset Lake, Schulten Farm is the perfect place to celebrate summer.

Arrive with your picnic! Join us in the mowed farm field for a picnic and enjoy the scenery while you munch lunch.

Come ready for kite flying, whether it is with a favorite, trusty kite of your own or borrow a kite from us. We’ll have plenty on hand.

There will be intriguing invertebrate investigations! Be sure to visit with Maine Master Naturalist Volunteer, Becky Kolak, to discover the tiny, spineless critters that live in the farm’s pond.

Families can also hunt down creative geocaches around the farm. Geocaching is the use of Global Positioning System receivers (GPS units) to hide and seek containers (geocaches or caches). The activity is practiced around the world. There are many active caches in the Bath area thanks to local enthusiasts who plan and upkeep the caches. There will be several GPS units available for kids to use.

 

KELT Kids Day of Play is FREE and light rain or shine. Wear clothing and footwear that can get muddy.
