Cranberry Bog Exhibit

Kerry wanted me to let you know about a very cool thing they’re having at some local libaries…..

Have you ever wondered about all of the cranberry bogs we see in our area?   The Hanson Children’s Museum is excited to bring our traveling Cranberry Bog exhibit to a library near you!  Your child can harvest cranberries and crawl through the "earth tunnel" to check out the layers of a bog on our traveling Bog Pit exhibit. Spend a fun morning in one of our playgroups, using hands on activities and crafts to introduce the importance of cranberries in our local area!  Three playgroups will be offered at each library, Bog in a Cup, Eco Tours and Tools of the Trade.

In September, please visit us at the Whitman Library from September 21st to the 23rd, where we are offering two playgroups each day from 10:00 to 10:45 and 11:00 to 11:45!  Call the Children’s Librarian to register at 781-447-7613. First come first serve!  We will also be visiting the Rockland Memorial Library the week of September 27th!  Please call 781-878-1236 to register for the Rockland Cranberry Festival playgroups.  All activities are free, but are limited to 15 children in each session!

Keep an eye out for us at your local library over the next few months! Our October Schedule will be available soon!  Stay tuned to our website and find us on facebook!
