July 10
Wonders at the Waterfront
Join us to discover the thrill of mucking around at low tide and splashing at mid-tide all in the same day! Try finding an eel under a rock or seining for juvenile fish. Make a flounder beanbag to take home.

Nuts About Nature
How observant are you of nature? Let’s take a peek at the little things that might pass you by and discover how to awaken all of your senses in the great outdoors. Make a gingerbread fort to take home.

July 24
Eelgrass, Eelgrass Everywhere
Did you know eelgrass beds are the most abundant habitat type in Great Bay? This flowering plant provides an ideal place for many animals to hide. We’ll make a pipefish craft to take home and put on an “eelgrass theater” presentation at the end of the program for parents to watch.

July 31
Mystery on Great Bay
Join us for a day of mystery indoor and outdoor games and activities. If you like surprises, or even if you don’t, you will be sure to have a super day near Great Bay! Make a mystery craft to take home.

I Want to Be a Lobsterman
People who lobster, work on research vessels or patrol the waters all need to know how to get around Great Bay. What does it take to pilot the Bay? We will discover the tools of the trade, learn basic chart skills and build our own model boats to float.

August 14
The Great Bay Escape
Join us for a day full of puzzles and mind teasers. Have you been to an escape room? Work together to escape from our Great Bay Special Collections Room by learning about the Bounty of the Bay. Create your own minute-to-win-it game to take home and challenge your family.
