Thursday, April 7, 3:30-5 pm: Hook, Line, and Sinker: The History of Fishing
Fishing has been important to Maine since human beings first arrived in our area. The Wabanaki fished the ocean, rivers, and lakes seasonally and fish of all kinds was a staple of their diet. Every subsequent group of people to arrive in Maine has, in some way, benefitted from the fishing industry and culture.
In this session children will learn about different eras of fishing in Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell through stories of people who fished for their livelihood or just for fun, and from fishing-related collection items. They’ll also get a sneak-peek at our Spring exhibition on fishing in the Pejepscot region before it opens to the public. Register now.
For children grades 3 through 5.
