Winter Programming...coming soon!

George Neptune, the new Abbe Museum Educator, has been hard at work planning an exciting schedule full of winter programming!  Many of the programs will soon be confirmed, and you'll be able to find all of the latest information in our online calendar.  Among these programs will be the return of the Brown Bag Lunch Series on the third Thursday of each month--January 17, February 21, and March 21--as well as family-friendly activities throughout early 2013.  Most of these programs will be thematically linked to the exhibit Wabanaki Guides, opening on February 6, 2013, and are possible, in part, through the generous support of the Hattie A. & Fred C. Lynam Trust.

While most topics and dates are still TBA (to be announced), here are some teasers from this winter's line-up:

~In January...In addition to the Brown Bag Lunch on January 17 and Nanook on January 26, we'll also be hosting a children's program.  The first Brown Bag Lunch will be a conversation about guiding with Jennifer Neptune and Ron Bear; Jennifer will discuss the process of becoming a guide, and Ron will share his experiences as a current guide.

~In February...In addition to the Brown Bag Lunch on February 21 and the opening of Wabanaki Guides on February 6, we'll be hosting an animal tracking workshop and special family activities during the week of school winter break.

~In March...In addition to the Brown Bag Lunch on March 21, we'll hold our annual Teachers Workshop as well as a family-friendly program.
