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.

Lancaster: Images From The Past - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

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.

 

Weeks State Park is located on the east side of Route 3, approximately 2 miles south of Lancaster.
