Marine Mammals Making Waves!
October 26, 2018

Learn about the seals, whales, dolphins and porpoises that live in and visit the Gulf of Maine and the NH and MA coast. Meet members of the Seacoast Science Center Marine Mammal Rescue Team (MMR), and learn about the strandings, entanglements, and cases MMR responded to in 2018. Visit hands-on learning stations where marine biologists and naturalists will engage visitors in mock seal rescues, skeleton investigations, and other activities about marine mammal feeding, migration, and play behaviors. We’ll talk trash about the risks that ocean debris poses to marine mammals and talk with local ocean champions from Blue Ocean Society and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) about ways we can make a difference.



SSC Members: $2.50 per person or $10 per family (up to 6)

THIS COPY IS HIDDENOdiorne Point State Park is a fantastic destination for bird enthusiasts, both expert and novice. With dense vegetation in the woodlands and wetlands and sweeping vistas of the salt marsh and Gulf of Maine, it’s no wonder Odiorne is a birding hot-spot. Once you bird here, you’ll want to come back again and again!

THIS COPY IS HIDDENBring your binoculars and/or scope and come dressed for the muddy spring terrain. A limited number of binoculars will be available to share. Presented in partnership with the Seacoast Chapter of New Hampshire Audubon.
