Discovery Play Day

Beach Combing at Low Tide

Tuesday, June 25

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Join us for this free family event. Learn about the critters that you can see at low tide.

Story time begins at 10:00 a.m. and then it’s craft time! Trace a sea animal stencil, color, paint and sprinkle with sand and pebbles.

Next, depending on the tide, you’ll comb the beach at Old Mill Park to find out what lives there and how they fit into the web of life. All craft activities are yours to take home and use.

Volunteers will begin at 9:00a.m. to help set up and then tasks are assigned and the program begins at 10:00a.m. Pick up and put away begins at 12:15p.m. or so.
