Shoals Ecology: Seabirds, Seals, and Seaweed
Friday, 09/02/2016 (All day)

Friday - Sunday, September 2 - 4. The best of everything Shoals has to offer! An adult program geared towards science exploration in three subject areas: ornithology, marine mammals, and the ocean ecosystem as a whole. This is the perfect program for adults who have never been to the Isles of Shoals, and for those who want to return to their island ecology roots!

 

Ornithology
Learn about the seabirds of the Isles of Shoals, including nesting terns and two species of gulls. The Appledore Island Migration Banding Station will be open for those of you interested in migrating songbirds and bird banding.

 

Marine Mammals
Dive into the depths of marine mammal science...acoustics, photo-identification, behavior, and more! The Duck Island seal colony (harbor seals and gray seals) is just 1 nautical mile north of Appledore Island. Learn about ongoing research conducted by Shoals Marine Lab scientists to study this population of seals. Early September is also whale watching season in New England, with opportunities to travel aboard SML's research vessels in search of minke whales, fin whales, and humpback whales!

 

Ocean Ecology
Explore the full range of ocean ecosystem topics - from tide pool seaweeds, to planktonic life in the world's oceans. You will have the opportunity to see and use specialized oceanographic equipment and help deploy it from SML's research vessels.

Take a Bite out of Appledore: An Eco-Culinary Island Retreat
Friday, 09/09/2016 (All day)

Friday - Sunday, September 9 - 11. Six miles off the New Hampshire coast, the Isles of Shoals have always embodied both opportunity and sense of place. From the cod fishermen of the early 1600's - to the glamorous Appledore House of the nineteenth century - to today's world-class Shoals Marine Laboratory, Appledore Island in particular has played host to people with a deep connection to their food and the natural world.

 

In this unique retreat, we bring together ecologists and award-winning chefs to interpret the many natural gifts the Isles of Shoals have to offer. Come as an individual or as a group to learn about the importance of sense of place, while also protecting a vital resource. And bring your appetite for food and knowledge!

 

Participants will forage for edible plants across the island, exploring trails and gardens, both maintained and wild. Along the rocky shore, comb for molluscs and seaweed, much like the island's colonial inhabitants. Ship out to sea in search of oceanic fish and benthic life as you learn each species' role in Gulf of Maine fisheries.

 

Dinners will be served en plein air with ocean views abound and the calls of passing seabirds in your ears. Sit with a glass of wine in hand as the smell of steamed shellfish wafts off your plate. Take a Bite out of Appledore is the perfect weekend getaway for connisseurs of food, science, and Isles of Shoals culture!

Wildflower Walk - Weeks State Park Event
Sunday, 09/11/2016 (01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

This can be a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy a walk in the woods. Please join us for our autumn wildflower walk. We will discover the wildflowers and other signs of nature in the park with the aid of naturalist, Matt Peters.

 

Matt is an independent ecologist and botanist with extensive field experience in diverse North American landscapes from Alaska and the Great Plains to the forests of the northeast. His work focuses on botanical and natural resource inventory, mapping, and management in northern New England. He leads workshops on foraging, edible wild plants and plant identification. In his home community of Plainfield, VT, he is involved in local river conservation efforts, serving on the town's Flood Management Advisory Committee and other non-profit boards. Matt's past work has included researching native grassland restoration practices, and assessing the impacts of industrial forestry and land management practices.

Participants should meet at the main entrance of Weeks State Park at 1 PM. Bring raingear just in case and suitable clothing and footwear for an easy walk in the Park.

Location

  • Weeks State Park, Summit Lodge, Lancaster, NH, 03584
