calendar icon May 19, 2021 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Kids are invited to check out Wild Sun Catchers online on Wednesday, May 19 at 2:00 PM on the library website (or by using the link that will be provided below).  The video will be available for viewing after the premiere at 2 PM.

Join Landere Naisbitt from Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Claire Malina from the Blue Hill Library for an online workshop on Apple and Shadbush blossoms.  Landere will discuss the ecology of these plants and Claire will share from the book When the Shadbush Blooms by Carla Messinger and Susan Katz  and illustrated by David Kanietakeron Fadden.  This month, we will be joined by local artist and community member, Kirsten Rickert, who will demonstrate how to make a May Crown with spring blossoms.

This month, register with our interactive calendar to reserve a kit with the materials needed for the project demonstrated in the video. Kits are free and will be available at the library starting Tues. May 18 but registration is required for each participant and can be completed using the calendar or by calling the library at 374-5515.

Wild Sun Catchers is a monthly program for kids and families that celebrates the wild plants of the Blue Hill Peninsula, with focus on a different plant each month. This program is free and is co-sponsored by the Blue Hill Library and Blue Hill Heritage Trust. For more information, email Claire at claire.malina@bhpl.net.
