Explore the World at SoFo

Two upcoming youth workshops at the South Fork Natural History Museum combine nature education and art exploration.

At 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Marla Nortman, an artist and educator, will talk about rainbows and lead a wet-on-wet watercolor painting session. It’s for kids ages 4 and up with adult companions. The cost is $10 for kids and $15 for adults, plus a $5 materials fee; SoFo members get free admission.

Also on Saturday, this time at 1 p.m., Ms. Nortman will lead kids 7 and up in the making of sand mandalas that can be saved and hung for display. Children must have an adult caregiver present. The same materials fee and admission cost apply.

The Young Birders Club, a free program for kids ages 8 to 18, will meet on Saturday at 10 a.m. Looking ahead, a program about water quality is on July 23 at 10:30 and another about frogs and toads is on July 24, also at 10:30. They are for kids ages 8 and up and the same admission fee applies.

SoFo educators will also be at the Amagansett Library on Wednesday afternoon to help kids learn about amphibians and reptiles — with animal friends for kids to meet up close. Best for kids in kindergarten through the sixth grade, the program takes place from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m., and is free to attend. Registration is through the Amagansett Library.

SoFo requires advance registration for its events, which can be done by phone at 631-537-9735 or by email at [email protected].
