Come learn all about plankton (tiny creatures that float in the water) during Saturday at The Sawmill. You’ll get the chance to net for plankton from the Acushnet River and view plankton under a microscope. Then try to build your own plankton and time how long it floats in the water!

During Saturdays at The Sawmill, the Hawes Family Learning Center will be open to the public from 10am-1pm, with the Storytime and Autumn Craft family program starting at 11am.
