CAMDEN — Merryspring Nature Center and Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District will begin their joint 2021 Explorer Kits Program on Wednesday, June 30, at 9 a.m., at Merryspring.
To make environmental education opportunities available to everyone during a time of social distancing and economic hardship, Merryspring Nature Center and Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District have partnered again to bring back their Explorer Kits program for the 2021 season.
Explorer Kits are free take-home activities designed to inspire outdoor exploration and independent learning. Each Wednesday between June 30 and August 18 a different Explorer Kit will be available for pickup at Merryspring. The Kits will feature instructions, materials, and ideas best suited for children ages 4 to 9, with each week presenting a new surprise activity and theme.
A total of 30 Explorer Kits will be available each week on a first-come, first-served basis. The Explorer Kits can be picked up from a box in front of Merryspring’s Ross Center each Wednesday at 9 a.m.
Explorer Kits are free to all, but donations are accepted.
