[email protected] is a new program series that gives you an opportunity to learn about the habitats and wildlife of Odiorne Point State Park after-hours.
Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2019
Twilight is a special time in Odiorne Point State Park, when nocturnal critters awaken and headlamps and flashlights make the tide pools and forest glow. Join us to discover the magic during our new [email protected] program series, offered bimonthly on Tuesday evenings.
All programs begin at the Seacoast Science Center. [email protected] is free-of-charge, however, a suggested donation of $5 per person is greatly appreciated.
Because space is limited, registration is required.
If you are unable to attend, please let us know in advance (by 3 pm on the day of the event) so others can take part in the program. Likewise, if you are unable to reserve a spot, please call one hour before the event and we will add you to the participant list if there is space available.

THIS COPY IS HIDDEN. Evening Tide Pooling
THIS COPY IS HIDDEN Tide pools provide habitat for many fascinating marine animals and plants that have adapted to the stresses of changing tides, waves, salinity, temperature, and oxygen. After a short lesson on intertidal ecology we’ll head to the tide pools to search for critters that live among the rocks and seaweeds.
