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.

Come ready for kite flying, whether it is with a favorite, trusty kite or with an idea for a brand new design of your own. KELT will provide a plethora of kite making supplies.

There will be intriguing invertebrate investigations! Be sure to visit with KELT’s Maine Conservation Corps Environmental Steward, Charlotte Thompson, 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. The rain date is July 16. Wear clothing and footwear that can get muddy.

 

Kids under 12 can join KELT Kids!— The Land Trust’s free kid membership program!
