Loon Rehabilitation - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 08/04/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Join Squam Lakes Project Biologist, Tiffany Grade, for a talk on The Common Loon - Ongoing Recovery for a New Hampshire Icon. Have you ever wondered why little chicks ride on their parents' backs? What loons are saying with those eerie calls in the night? Do loons mate for life? What threats do they face? Tiffany will describe the natural history of these amazing and beautiful birds on New Hampshire lakes and Loon Preservation Committee's work to safeguard this threatened loon population.

 

The mission of the Loon Preservation Committee is to restore and maintain a healthy population of loons throughout New Hampshire; to monitor the health and productivity of loon populations as sentinels of environmental quality; and to promote a greater understanding of loons and the natural world. Since its creation in 1975 in response to concerns about a dramatically declining loon population and the effects of human activities on loons, Loon Preservation Committee has grown to become a leader among environmental organizations working to preserve a threatened species. Loon Preservation Committee's success in protecting New Hampshire's loon population has been attributed in large part to the monitoring, research, management and educational activities of Loon Preservation Committee staff, members, and volunteers.

Scientist for a Day on Great Bay
Sunday, 08/07/2016 (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.
