Fizz, Boom, Read! 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:
- 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.
