Just snap a photo of each item you find and email it to to be entered into a raffle for a prize that includes a nature activity book, pocket microscope and a bug net. The whole family can participate in the hunt, but the raffle prize winner must be between the ages of 5 and 12. The winner will be announced at the end of August.

Sears Island is located on Sears Island Road off Route 1 just east of Searsport. To learn more about Friends of Sears Island, visit or
