Blue Hill Public Library
Julianne Taylor, education coordinator for “Explore Outdoors!” – a collaboration between Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Downeast Audubon and Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust – will be doing two events at the Blue Hill Public Library in May. First will be a special Preschool Storytime event on Tuesday May 15th at 10:30 AM, where she will read the story Swimming Home by Susan Hand Shetterly and illustrated by local artist Rebekah Raye, which tells the story of Pesca the alewife as she migrates back to her freshwater home in Lily Lake. After the story, participants will do a fish printing activity.
The next day, Wednesday, May 16th at 3:30 PM, Julianne will do an afterschool program on how alewives and young eels make an incredible migration back to Maine each spring. Participants will learn about the different diadromous fish in Maine and do a fish printing activity.
These program are co-sponsored by the library and “Explore Outdoors!”. There is no charge and everyone is welcome. For more information call the Library at 374-5515.
