The Art and Science of Tide Pools with Landere Naisbitt and Kristy Cunnane
Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Compass Rose Books, Witherle Library, and local artist, Kristy Cunnane, for a fun tide pooling event for kids! We will explore the tidepools at the Back Shore Beach in Castine and learn about barnacles, crabs, periwinkles and various other tide pool creatures. We will also do an art activity and each child will make their own accordion book with drawings of the creatures we find in the tide pools.
Ages 8 to 12
Carter Nature Preserve At the tide pool at 99 Cross Rd. in Surry.
Please wear sturdy closed-toed shoes that you don’t mind getting wet, and bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
Co-sponsored by Compass Rose Books, Castine’s independent bookstore.

After renting in many of the area towns including South Blue Hill, East Blue Hill, Brooklin, Sedgwick, Deer Isle, Penobscot, and Surry, she became familiar with the micro-landscapes of each unique place and looks forward to knowing them better through the lens of conservation and education.
