Marsh Madness -- An Adventure for Kids!

TUESDAY, AUGUST 7  NOON – 4PM

Join us on an Expedition to Joppa Flats and the marsh beyond! We’ll learn about navigation and mapping the coastline as we go, using tools our maritime ancestors would have used. Once we reach Joppa we’ll spend the afternoon exploring the marsh ecosystem, finding and identifying the plants and animals that call the marsh home. The logistics for this program will be a little different as drop off will be at Cashman Park in Newburyport, and pick up will be at the lot at the Plum Island Bridge (we can provide directions).

This adventure is appropriate for children ages 9-13. Space is limited.

Wednesday, August 8 will be the rain date.

Castaways - An Adventure for Kids!

TUESDAY, AUGUST 21  9AM – 1PM

What does it take to survive on an island in the middle of the mighty Merrimack? Join us on this Castaways adventure to find out! We’ll row from Lowell’s Boat Shop downriver to High Rock, where we’ll make landfall and practice our survival skills such as shelter building, tracking, and wild edibles identification. Teamwork and the ability to think out of the box required!

This adventure is appropriate for children ages 9-13. Space is limited.

Wednesday, August 22 will be the rain date.
