Online Children’s Program: “Wild Sun Catchers – Apple and Shadbush Blossoms”
May 19 @ 2:00 pm
On Wednesday, May 19, at 2 p.m., kids are invited to join Blue Hill Public Library Youth Services Librarian Claire Malina and Blue Hill Heritage Trust Outreach Coordinator Landere Naisbitt for an online Wild Sun Catchers workshop on apple and shadbush blossoms.
Naisbitt will discuss the ecology of these plants and Malina will share from the book “When the Shadbush Blooms” by Carla Messinger and Susan Katz and illustrated by David Kanietakeron Fadden. This month, we will be joined by local artist and community member Kirsten Rickert, who will demonstrate how to make a May Crown with spring blossoms.
This month, register with our interactive calendar to reserve a kit with the materials needed for the project demonstrated in the video. Kits are free and will be available at the library starting Tuesday, May 18, but registration is required for each participant and can be completed using the calendar or by calling the library at 374-5515.
Wild Sun Catchers is a monthly program for kids and families that celebrates the wild plants of the Blue Hill Peninsula, with focus on a different plant each month. This program is free and is co-sponsored by the Blue Hill Library and Blue Hill Heritage Trust.
