COASTFEST

On October 6, people from across the coast converged on Mary Ross Park for the annual Coast Fest event, sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources.  Friends of Sapelo members were invited to come along and join the fun at the Sapelo Island National Research Reserve booth.  Adam MacKinnon, SINERR educational coordinator brought all of his toys to share with event participants.  The kids were the most fun as they discovered what things looked liked under the microscope.  A favorite comment when FOS member OC Lam asked a young man, “What color is your mom’s hair?” Before he could put the microscope to her red head he replied, “Gray!” Parents had just as much fun using the 3D kaleidoscope.  If you did not get out to Coastfest this year, mark your calendar for September 7, 2019.
