Every season of the year we do something special. During the fall and winter, our Evenings at the Seacoast Science Center Dinner Series brings author-adventurers, scientists, and historians to share their fascinating stories and latest findings. Celebrate spring and Earth Day by taking part in our Rescue Run. Enjoy cocktails, food and dancing by the shore to benefit our Marine Mammal Rescue program at our Sippin' For Seals event in June. It wouldn't be summer on the seacoast without enjoying a picnic and great music at Music-by-the-Sea concerts. In September, explore Odiorne Point State Park with expert naturalists at BioBlitz!

September 20, 2014, 5am-5pm
BioBlitz! is like an extreme scavenger hunt, where scientists, field naturalists, backyard enthusiasts and families come together to scour the 135-acres and seven different habitats of Odiorne Point State Park to record data on as many different species as possible in one day.
Guided field programs and special activities are offered throughout the day. Our Gregg Interactive Learning Studio serves as home base. There, you will see samples of species collected by naturalists and learn about the identification process. You can see amazing images on the big-screens, observe insects through microscopes, see samples of seaweeds and fungi, research on your own with our touch-screen computers, and much, much more.
The total number of species identified since the first BioBlitz! in Odiorne in 2003 tops 2,062 and continues to grow every year. This valuable catalogue serves as a snapshot of biodiversity of our region. Your participation will not only help us monitor biodiversity, it will help us provide countless educational opportunities for school children, families and groups.
Registration opens in August.
