Beachgrass Garden Monitoring
(08:30 AM - 11:00 AM)

Join the Coastal Research Volunteers to collect data on native sand dune plants. Earlier this year, volunteers planted sand dune plants in a "Common Garden" at Hampton Beach State Park. The plants are growing in the garden over the summer and will be transplanted into the dunes as part of a restoration effort in the fall. We are collecting data on plant growth and survival to help us understand how well this approach works for increasing the number of plants. Training on plant identification and data collection methods will occur on site. Youth under 18 years old are welcome to join us if accompanied by an adult.

What to Bring: The site does not offer much shade, so sun protection is recommended. Volunteers should also bring water and a snack.

Embracing the Shaker Lifestyle & Legacy through Permaculture Design

A Permaculture Design Certification Course rooted in history, meaningful dialogue, the connection to holistic rhythms and beautifully skilled design

This April, spring into a unique and deep learning experience through ecological design that will shift the way you move through your life. Perhaps you are curious about the study of permaculture. It could be that there is a home landscape project you would like to design and implement using less resources and less maintenance. Maybe you are looking for a new way to view the world’s complicated array of problems…as opportunities? Would you like to discover your ‘ecological self’ and live more harmoniously and in tune with nature and the natural world?

As we plan and design a more sustainable and holistic world for ourselves and future generations, the Shakers have much to teach us about:

  • How much is enough
  • Simplicity
  • Multi-functionality in all we do
  • Finding contentment in who we are, what we have and what we do
  • Making a lot with a little
  • Resiliency

Join Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis on a journey of self exploration, professional level design work, deep connection and understanding of natural cycles and rhythms, and the ability to make your own life more meaningful and resilient simultaneously turning global unknowns into positive actions.

About Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis

Your instructors for this program are Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis – and you are in good hands with an enthusiastic teaching team!! Combined, they have over:

  • 40 years experience in contemplative and holistic practices
  • 50 years experience in design work
  • 60 years experience in teaching and homesteading

Lauren, Stacey and Mary all have their Permaculture Design Certifications, were on the teaching and design teams for Advanced Permaculture Diplomas in Franklin, Littleton, and Manchester, and they all have the Permaculture Teacher Training Certifications. Stacey brings over fifteen years of land use and sustainability planning to the team’s experience. Lauren brings over twenty-five years of ecological landscape design and project management to the team’s experience. Mary brings over twenty years of volunteer coordination of Natural Resources Stewards and community leaders to improve ecosystems in NH communities. Lauren and Mary together have co-authored books in their field while Stacey, an aspiring author, has recently begun a daily blog to inspire people to embrace a daily practice of gratitude, love and communion with nature. Their approach to teaching permaculture is unique in that they bring authenticity, earth-wisdom, and deep connection between nature and our daily lives, while building on the solid foundation of science, horticulture, and design found in regional permaculture design certificate courses.

As we engage in this opportunity as a learning community, this class becomes more than a permaculture design certification course. It is an experience that can change your perspective, give you hope, and empower you from decision making to taking simple actions in your life that bring satisfaction and contentment. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Scientist for a Day on Great Bay Cruise
(08:30 AM - 02:30 PM)

Dates 

- Saturday, July 18, 2015

- Saturday, August 1, 2015

- Thursday, August 6, 2015

- Tuesday, August 11, 2015

 

Join fellow explorers on an activity-based cruise from Portsmouth up the Piscataqua River into the Great Bay Estuary and to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory. You are likely to get your hands wet as you learn about marine and estuarine ecosystems on this informal, educational cruise. You'll be invited to tow for plankton and marvel at its movement in a magnifying scope; capture water from below the surface and test its characteristics; observe, handle, and hear about plants and animals from the unique habitats of the estuary; deploy an otter trawl; and find out what scientists study about The Great Bay.

 

The Great Bay Estuary system adds approximately 150 miles to New Hampshire's relatively small coastline. Those 150 miles include everything from industrial, historical, and military landmarks to a wildlife refuge and National Estuarine Research Reserve. There will be opportunities to learn more about these landmarks and share what you know. There is also plenty of time on-board to just enjoy the fresh air, sights, and sounds of the estuary with your on-board companions as we scan for bald eagles, osprey, and harbor seals.

 

You will cruise aboard the 50 foot UNH Research Vessel, Gulf Challenger, under the guidance of the enthusiastic and knowledgeable UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docents, a New Hampshire Sea Grant water resources educator, and the crew of the Gulf Challenger. Time aboard the boat is approximately 5 hours, including about a half-hour visit to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory.

 

Cruises depart from the UNH Pier, next to the U.S. Coast Guard station at Fort Point in New Castle, New Hampshire. Please arrive at the UNH Pier by 8:30 AM for check-in and orientation. Cruises return by 2:30 PM.
