Event has passed

CAMDEN — Merryspring Nature Center will host a free family program called “Wildlife Detectives” on Friday, August 7 at 10 a.m.

In this program, children will solve natural mysteries hidden in animal bones and fur. Using their detective skills, kids will learn about a number of native Maine mystery animals’ diet, behavior, adaptations, and habitat. After the activity, there will be a brief nature walk to look for evidence of wildlife.

To keep groups small during pandemic conditions, Free Family Fridays have limited space available and guests MUST pre-register for this program. Families can sign up by contacting Merryspring at or 207-236-2239.

This program is outdoors. Families must wear face masks and adhere to safe social distancing guidelines. In the event of rain, this program will be canceled. Guests should bring water bottles and be prepared to be outside for up to one hour.

Merryspring is your community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza. For more information on this program, please contact or call 207-236-2239.
