New at the Goat

After taking a Saturday off for its annual Bambini Ball fund-raiser last weekend, puppet shows will resume this week at the Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor. A Couple of Puppets will debut a new show, “The Doubtful Sprout,” on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Tickets are $12, or $10 for members, grandparents, and kids under 3. 


SoFo Explorations

Working with the South Fork Natural History Museum’s resident marine animals on Saturday, children 6 to 10 will learn about how sunlight acts when it travels through water and how animals in the ocean react to it.

The marine lab, led by Melanie Meade, is designed to supplement the state’s intermediate level science core curriculum for fifth through eighth graders. It will start at 10 a.m.

Also on Saturday, at the same time, Crystal Possehl will lead 5 to 7-year-olds on a backpack adventure to explore the Sagg Swamp. Participants will borrow a backpack stocked with magnifiers, binoculars, a compass, sample bottles, and a sketchpad to study and record their observations.

Enrollment in both programs is limited and advance registration is required.
