Make natural science a part of your summer reading program with a Natural Encounters live animal program. Introduce your readers to the world of ecology, ornithology, and biology! Some of our outreach programs are below or learn more about outreaches here:
- 2015 Summer Reading Program: Earth Heroes
The Peregrine Falcon was formerly on the brink of extinction. These awe-inspiring aerial hunters are once again soaring across New Hampshire's skies thanks to the passion and dedication of people we like to call Earth Heroes.
A naturalist from Squam Lakes Natural Science Center will introduce you to three live animals native to New Hampshire, including a Peregrine Falcon. Hear the inspiring stories of three Earth Heroes whose work has helped to ensure the survival of these amazing native animals.
- Aquatic Critters
Water is essential for all life on our planet. Be an ecologist for a day as you learn about the habitats, adaptations and populations of animals supported by NH’s aquatic communities. Meet three live animals dependent on NH waters.
- Owls of New Hampshire
Who calls in the night? Who glides on shadowy wings in silent flight? Be an ornithologist for a day and meet three of our state’s mysterious owls and find out what is myth or fact about these nocturnal birds.
- Coded Messages
People communicate in many ways – a loud shout, a soft whimper, a wrinkled expression, laughter. Animals communicate in many ways, too. Be a biologist for a day and discover how and why wild animals communicate.
