When: Tuesday, August 7 at 1pm to 3pm

Where: Reid State Park in Georgetown

Join KELT staff members and Maine Master Naturalist Volunteers Ruth Indrick and Becky Kolak to discover the fascinating, vibrant world of the intertidal zone. This event is great for explorers of all ages! 

Indrick and Kolak will meet participants at Griffith's Head, in the grassy picnic area between the parking lot and wooden roadway bridge. Activities include a tidal pool scavenger hunt and a demonstration on how to spot the differences between common seaweed species.  Folks will learn about the invasive European green crab and how it is impacting this tidal habitat and the animals that live there. Indrick will lead participants to try out techniques used by local students to collect data on current green crab populations.

The program offered by KELT is free and open to the public. Participants will need to pay the state park entrance fee. This is a light rain or shine event, and registration is strongly encouraged, using the Google Form below.
