This program is brought to you by a Merrymeeting Bay Trust Grant. The weekly (16 weeks) Storywalks run from June to October, (fall programs TBA), and are led by Bowdoin College students. Dress appropriately for wooded areas and consider using bug protection. Please ask the Children’s Room staff about our new circulating My Own Backyard (MOBY) themed backpacks and book bags, tools for youth exploration of local natural history.
