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!
Fishways Open House
Spend a day of your school vacation enjoying a party at the Fishways!
Our annual "thank you" Open House features two presentations: "Active Winter Mammals" and "Winter Backyard Birds".
Create fun crafts, eat yummy treats, and win door prizes! Try not to miss this fun annual event!
Amoskeag Fishways Fall Programs
Eyes on Owls
Whooo knows these fun facts? Owls have large eyes, a flat face and can turn their heads as much as 270 degrees.
They are nocturnal, very quiet in flight and when seen together, a group of owls is called a parliament! Learn all about New Hampshire's owls,
what they look like, where they might be found and best of all, see these wonderful birds of the night up close. Hooting lessons included!
Marcia and Mark Wilson will be our expert presenters.
