Youth Excursions: April Vacation - Summits & Sea Creatures

Travel north with us to York, Maine, to explore a mountaintop and the ocean in one day - it's the best of both worlds! We'll start at Long Sands Beach, where we'll investigate the tide pools for marine life. The, we'll hike up Mount Agamenticus, where we'll keep an eye out for plants and animals unique to mountain habitats, and for evidence of the glaciers that covered the area thousands of years ago. We promise a lunch break, raptor search, and games at the summit! The two-mile hike is a combination of gentle and moderately hilly terrain. This is a great mountain for beginners and is full of natural history interest for more experienced hikers.

Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Bring water and a nut-free lunch and snack. Please dress for the weather in layers, with sturdy, waterproof hiking boots. A health form for your child will accompany your registration confirmation and will need to be completed and submitted before the program.
Registration is required. Call 978-462-9998 to register by phone
