South Shore Events This Weekend
1) Tracking: Footprint Mysteries And Telltale Signs
Join in on the fun with Naturalist Doug Lowry at the North Hill Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, Mayflower Street in Duxbury for a morning of animal tracking and learning. You will be amazed to learn what activity goes on, whether the creatures are big or small. Each set of prints tells a story about the individual species, how it gathers food, where it forages and caches and how it moves around. Like detectives, you will learn how to identify tracks and follow their stories. Meet at the North Hill Marsh Sanctuary main parking lot on Mayflower Street in Duxbury. This event is great for the whole family, and for kids ages 10 through 18 years old. The cost to participate in the learning adventure is $12 for adult members and $8 for child members, or nonmember adults are $15 and children $11.

3) High School Book Group
Did you know there was a book group for Hingham teenagers? The High School Book Group meets on Saturdays at the Hingham Public Library, 66 Leavitt Street in Hingham. This is a wonderful opportunity to get your teens involved in thinking about what they read, and discussing themes, insights, and topics with others. The chosen book is The Queen’s Thief series, by Megan Whalen Turner, and culminates in May with the release of the series’ latest installment. This book just started so it is not too late to join in. The reading group welcomes all teenagers in 9th grade and up. Even though registration is encouraged, all are welcome.

The suggested donation is $65 which includes lunch.
