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.

 

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy while looking from the Isles to the coast or gazing at the long line of the horizon where the sea meets the sky. Taking an Appledore Island Walking Tour with the Docents is a voyage you'll never forget.

 

Open to members of the public on a first come, first served basis. Children 10 years of age and older are welcome on the cruises when escorted at all times by an adult.

Marine Docent Information Meeting
(10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

Learn about the marine environment and give back to your community by becoming a UNH Marine Docent! An informational meeting for those interested in becoming a docent will be held on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 10:00 AM at the New Hampshire Sea Grant office in Lee.

 

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension Marine Docent program is a group of more than 200 volunteers who educate the community about coastal resources, teaching up-to-the-minute marine science in classrooms and at sea aboard the University's research vessel.

 

The Docents' challenge is being able to translate scientific information to the public to match the needs of the current times, explains Mark Wiley, assistant director of marine education for N.H. Sea Grant/UNH Cooperative Extension.

 

To prepare for their roles as educators, Marine Docents get hands-on training in local history and science by UNH faculty, extension educators and other experts in the marine field. Training takes place both inside the classroom and out, with a variety of field trips to sites around the Seacoast. The five-month training program begins in September, with courses held Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

 

No prior experience is required to become a Marine Docent. Ideal candidates possess a love of learning, a keen interest in the marine environment, a sense of stewardship for the marine world, and a desire to share their knowledge with children and adults in the community.

 

The Marine Docent Program is sponsored by New Hampshire Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension.

Bob Hunt and Anne Morgan will present a slide program entitled "Lancaster: Images From the Past" at Weeks State Park at 7 P.M. on Thursday, August 28th.  This free program helps to celebrate Lancaster’s 250th  anniversary.  Bob and Anne will show historical photographs from Lancaster’s past.  Their slide show is based upon the new book entitled “Lancaster” by the Lancaster Historical Society.   Lancaster was settled in 1764 when David Page of Petersham, MA obtained a grant and sent his sons to the wilderness of Upper Cohoss.  Lancaster was the first settlement north of Haverhill and has upheld its old New England atmosphere.  This program highlights the men and women who farmed the land and contributed to the industrial and cultural growth of the town. Historical images are from the archives of the Lancaster Historical Society.  Both Bob and Anne are elementary school teachers and active members of the Historical Society and were instrumental in the compilation of the book.

 

The program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.   

Come early and enjoy the scenic park drive and views.
