Special Events

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!

For teachers of grades 3 - 8.

Teach about your local river and meet multidisciplinary curriculum goals! The Merrimack River and its watershed have a rich cultural and natural history. From the textile mills to geology to dams and fish ladders to natural history data, the Merrimack River Watershed offers many unique opportunities for student learning. Join us for a fun day of science inquiry, problem solving, literacy and data analysis with a river theme. This watershed curriculum will act as a model for using local natural systems to achieve your science, literacy, math and STEM goals. CEUs available.
Cost: $50.
