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!
Celebrate the 2013 Fish Season!
The Amoskeag Fishways celebrates the 2013 fish migration season April 29th through June 15th. We will be open seven days a week, 9 am-5 pm. The center will be closed Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day. Walk-in visitors are always welcome and guided fish season tours are offered to groups of 10-30 participants. For more information about fish season or to schedule a tour, call 626-FISH.
2013 Fish Festival
Featuring Dash and Splash!
Line up and cheer on US Fish and Wildlife biologists when they deliver adult broodstock salmon to stock our fish ladder at 10am. The ladder is running but the wild fish have yet to swim up the Merrimack River. While we wait, we stock fish in the ladder for up close and personal underwater viewing. Fish stocking will be followed by fish crafts, fish hats, fish games, and fish fun!
Sea Lamprey Appreciation Day
The slimy and fascinating sea lamprey returns! Hold a live three foot long sea lamprey! Lamprey are the coolest and most ancient fish in the Merrimack River. Get sucked into the fun at this unique celebration of an under appreciated animal.
