Coastal Children’s Museum and Project Puffin will be taking their Seaside Explorers program on a free trip out to Hog Island to explore the shoreline and its inhabitants Friday, Aug. 12, at 11:45 a.m.. This workshop includes a short boat ride from Todd Wildlife Sanctuary in Bremen to Hog Island.

Participants will meet at the Todd Wildlife Sanctuary, 10 Audubon Road, Bremen, at 11:45 a.m. They will be on Hog Island for approximately an hour, returning to the mainland around 1:15 p.m. While out on the island, kids and their parents will have the opportunity to explore and learn about the intertidal habitat and the animals that live there. Knowledgeable staff from Project Puffin and the Coastal Children's Museum will be there to guide and answer questions.
