On Wednesday, April 26, from 4-5:30 p.m. Friends of Sears Island will be hosting a Science Squad afterschool program for kids focused on celebrating our connections to our earth. The program will take place on Sears Island, and will include “Movement with Mother Earth Yoga,” a short children’s nature-themed yoga program on the beach, facilitated by yoga instructor Natasha (Nirupama). Ronda of Carver Memorial Library will be sharing books celebrating wonders of the earth and inviting everyone to sing and move along with the stories. If time allows, participants can help with a beach clean-up at the end of the program.
This free program is for kids ages 6-12 and an accompanying adult. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Sign-up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is complete upon receiving a confirmation email. This event is part of Friends of Sears Island’s “Science Squad,” a place-based after-school program involving children as scientists, explorers, and stewards of their environment. Science Squad is sponsored by First National Bank and First National Wealth Management.
Sears Island is located on Sears Island Road off Route 1 just east of Searsport. Registered participants should park along the causeway at the end of the road and meet at the island gate by 4 p.m. Please wear footwear and outdoor gear appropriate for walking along the beach and in the woods. Bring a beach towel to use as a yoga mat, water, and a snack. No pets are permitted at public programs. In the event of inclement weather, program participants will be notified that the program is canceled. For more information, visit friendsofsearsisland.org or facebook.com/friendsofsearsisland.
