Friends of Sears Island will host a stewardship-themed program for children on Earth Day, Monday, April 22, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sears Island. Through activities and games, participating kids will learn how to be a steward of the environment and leave with ideas about actions they can take every day to help the earth. Samantha Langlois will also describe the Plastic Challenge happening this month, and the program will culminate in a beach cleanup. The free program is for children ages 6 through 12 accompanied by an adult. To participate, advance registration is required at www.friendsofsearsisland.org. Sears Island is located on Sears Island Road off Route 1 just east of Searsport. Registered participants should park along the causeway at the end of the road and meet at the island gate by 4 p.m. No pets are permitted at public programs. The rain date will be April 24.
