Great Bay Estuary Family Program

Join us this Wednesday at 10AM for a fun family program as we learn about the Great Bay Estuary. A UNH docent will use props, short video clips, and illustrative photos to show students how different plants and animals survive in one of earth's most challenging environments. Participants will learn about the Great Bay Estuary's three main habitats: eel grass meadows, mud flats, and salt marshes and then will be challenged to explain the different adaptations in each. Why are the legs of the great blue heron different from those of the osprey? What does a clam do exactly when there's no water left at low tide? How can marsh grass grow in such salty water? This program is recommended for students entering grades Kindergarten through six. No sign-up is required.
