Unlike our public and school programs, Special Events
only happen a few times a year. They are usually much larger in scale
and showcase live animals and guest speakers. You don't want to miss these
events. They are lots of fun for all ages. Check back often to catch our
next Special Event!
NEW at the Fishways!
Interactive Watershed Exhibit
The Amoskeag Fishways is thrilled to be the first science education center in New Hampshire to have an augmented reality watershed exhibit! Visitors play in the sand to create unique landscapes and observe how the projected contour lines and colors change as the terrain is altered. It is really fun to build mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers... essentially creating your very own watershed. Make it RAIN when a 3-D camera responds to your hand movements, showing in real time how water moves over a landscape!
River Bug Festival
Did you know the Merrimack River is home to many species of underwater insects?
Observe these live bugs up close, and learn how to identify them using NH Audubon's Creek Critters app.
The day will include aquatic insect crafts, games, exploration and identification.
Vote for your favorite river bug to win in the "Most Loved Bug" category of 2016!
