Who We Are: About Us
Through spectacular live animal exhibits, natural science education programs, and lake cruises, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center has educated and enlightened visitors for over forty years about our natural world. In September 2006 and again in September 2011, we gained national accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA); we are the only AZA-accredited institution in northern New England.
The mission of Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is to advance understanding of ecology by exploring New Hampshire's natural world.
