Discovering Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral Treasures at the Seashore: Children Ages 3-7
Program Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Education & Outreach Coordinator
What will we find in the wrack line today? Come along with Melanie and see how many different things you can find in the wrack – that line of seaweeds and other things on the sand left behind by ocean tides each day. What treasures will be there? Will we see a spider crab’s shell or a fish bone? Pink and yellow pebbles or green and red seaweeds? We will look, using a magnifier, for tiny shrimp-like animals called amphipods that live in the damp seaweeds. Bring something to take pictures with and you can make your own seashore treasure book at home!
