For kids who want to learn more about the natural world, including the wildlife that lives in and around Great Bay, this winter’s Bayventures grab ‘n’ go activity kits are a free, exciting, and self-guided way for families to discover the outdoors! Beginning on Monday, December 21 with “Winter Solstice” materials and then continuing into 2021, each week a different grab ‘n’ go activity kit will be available that contains background information and an activity or craft instructions. Each kit will support self-taught lessons and experiences for visitors on the grounds of the Great Bay Discovery Center at 89 Depot Road in Greenland.
