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!
Amoskeag Fishways Summer Programs and Events
Fishways Family Adventures
Looking for some fun, summer outings for your family? Join Fishways staff to hike, stomp, dig, climb, splash, search for critters and more as we discover some
of the local natural gems in the Merrimack River Watershed. Put on your boots and explore with us!
All Family Adventures will meet at the Fishways and caravan to the local destination of the week. Please call 626-FISH for details.
Family Volunteer Day
Help us rebuild our Fishways wigwam! Spend the morning outdoors, bending saplings, lashing them together, and learning firsthand how these structures were traditionally made. We will do some "fall cleaning" and spruce-up our fire pit. All ages welcome, snacks and water provided.
15th Annual Bug Ball
Activities will include an insect petting zoo, buggy crafts, and special guest, Dr. Paul Johnson, UNH insect expert. Participants will enjoy special staff presentations, "Monarch Butterflies and Native Bees", featuring two very important and local insect pollinators. Help us give our six-legged friends the respect they deserve!
