SEARSPORT — Friends of Sears Island will be offering free grab-and-go activity kits this month for children themed around the importance of pollinators. This month’s kit will include materials to make a “bee hotel” habitat, a butterfly craft, a magnifier box for examining pollinating insects, and a pollinator scavenger hunt. Educational handouts and project instructions will be included as well.

The kits are free and intended for children ages 5-12.

Donations to Friends of Sears Island are always appreciated to allow the organization to continue to offer programming to all at no cost, according to Friends, in a news release. Quantities are limited and will be distributed to families on a first-come, first-served basis.

To request a kit for your child, please email outreach@friendsofsearsisland.org. After receiving a confirmation email, families can pick up their kits from June 18-30 at the Carver Memorial Library, in Searsport.
