The Long Island Maker Faire is back in person for it’s 6th year! What is a “maker faire”? Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects. It is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
The Nature Initiative group will have a table this year to showcase our 12′ Wood Duck kayak and we’ll also be discussing how we crafted 16 ft wooden oars for the 1776 Whaleboat project. These builds were done by our very own student volunteers over the course of the years at the Bayles Boat Shop. Whether you’ve participated in this project or not, we would love to have your support while we talk to the public about the Nature Initiative program and what we are all about!
We will be meeting at the Bayles Boat Shop adjacent to the village center in Port Jefferson Village (Broadway Ave).
**Volunteers are welcome to sign up for a half day or full day since this is a longer event. If you are doing a half day, please email me with the time frame (9:30 AM-12:30 PM or 12:30 PM-3:30 PM) you would like to attend for after signing up.**
