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:
- 2018 Summer Reading Program - Animal Sounds
Animals make sounds for a variety of reasons – to attract a mate, to defend their territory, to capture prey, or even to escape predators. Join a Squam Lakes Natural Science Center naturalist and three live animals native to New Hampshire to hear their sounds and discover the reasons behind them.
- 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.
- New Hampshire Wildlife
Are you curious about the critters that inhabit the Granite State? Join a Squam Lakes Natural Science Center naturalist to meet three wild animals that you could encounter in our forests, fields, or wetlands. Discover what makes them well-suited for life in New Hampshire.
- 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.
