Explorer Kits – Free Take-Home Activities

We’ve partnered with our friends at Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District for an alternative, take-home program for families this summer.

On Wednesday, July 1 we will debut our free EXPLORER KITS for families and children.

To make environmental education opportunities available to everyone during a time of social distancing and economic hardship, Explorer Kits are free take-home activities designed to inspire outdoor exploration and independent learning. Each Wednesday between July 1 and August 19 a different Explorer Kit will be available for pickup at Merryspring. The Kits will feature instructions, materials, and ideas for children ages 4 to 9, with each week presenting a new surprise activity and theme.

A total of 20 Explorer Kits will be available each week on a first-come, first-served basis. The Explorer Kits can be picked up from a box in front of Merryspring’s Ross Center each Wednesday at 9 am.

Explorer Kits are free to all, but donations are accepted. For more information on Explorer Kits, please contact Merryspring at info@merryspring.org or 207-236-2239.
