Sunday July 17, Saturday July 23, Sunday July 24, Saturday July 30, Sunday July 31, Friday August 12, Sunday August 14, Friday August 19.

Spend the day on Appledore Island, one of the nine beautiful Isles of Shoals off the coasts of Maine and New Hampshire, and visit the Shoals Marine Lab. Travel out to Appledore on the University of New Hampshire research vessel, the R/V Gulf Challenger, with UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docent tour guides. Investigate the intriguing intertidal creatures and zooplankton collected from the ocean at informal science stations on the boat.

 

On Appledore, explore the natural history of the island with the Docents. Look down to magnificent rock formations of eons past and up to a sky filled with birds that live on the island today. Learn about the plants that withstood the salty sea air to provide colonial settlers with remedies and today supply nutrition for the long voyages of migrating birds.

 

Discover the important role the Shoals played in the fishing economy of the 17th century. Find out about the amazing resort hotels on the Shoals in the 19th century and the people who flocked to the Isles for the healthy sea air. Visit the recreated garden of famous poet and essayist Celia Thaxter, who once lived on Appledore, and learn of her family's life on the Shoals.

 

Visit the main laboratory of the Shoals Marine Lab, the largest facility for undergraduate study of its kind in the world, and examine marine organisms via video microscope. Learn how students at the lab delve into the intensive study of the marine world and how you and your family can take a course there.

Scientist for a Day on Great Bay
Thursday, 08/04/2016 (08:30 AM - 02:30 PM)

Saturday July 16, Tuesday July 26, Thursday August 4, Sunday August 7.

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.
