Winter Youth Bayventures Programs Offered at Great Bay Discovery Center


Beth Heckman: 603-778-0015

January 30, 2020

GREENLAND, NH -–Youth day programs are being offered again this winter during February school vacation week at the Great Bay Discovery Center, 89 Depot Road in Greenland. Bayventures and Jr. Bayventures give boys and girls the chance to learn about the creatures and habitats of Great Bay, outdoor observation, and even how animals adapt as the temperature drops. Sessions will be offered in February with a special overnight program offered for older Bayventures kids in March. Great Bay Discovery Center is operated by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, and these sessions have nominal charges associated with them to cover the cost of programming and materials.

Bayventure programs are intended for children who entered grades 1-6 in the fall of 2019. Winter vacation week Bayventure programs will be held on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and each session is $25 for Great Bay Stewards members and $30 for non-members. Each program is limited to 14 participants.

Participants may register for one or more sessions by calling 603-778-0015 or by emailing beth.heckman@wildlife.nh.gov.

Session 1: Outside with Owls, Wednesday, February 26

Many owls nest in the winter, and this session will focus on exploring the woods around the Great Bay Discovery Center looking for evidence of owls. Owl games and an owl craft project will teach attendees about these fascinating nocturnal birds.

Session 2: Project Feederwatch, Thursday, February 27

Birdwatching is a hobby that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. This session will introduce children to basic bird identification and allow them to participate in Project Feederwatch’s bird count for 2020. Games and crafts focused on our feathered friends will reinforce attendee’s understanding of birds.

Session 3: Winter Carnival, Friday, February 28

Animals adapt to the seasons in different ways using resources such as camouflage and scent detection. The session will explore how wildlife in the Great Bay, such as cottontail rabbits and foxes, adapt to their environment. Attendees will try traversing on snowshoes and make a craft to take home.

Session 4: Wake Up in A Wigwam: A Special Program for Older Bayventure Kids. Friday, March 13–Saturday, March 14

An overnight adventure for explorers ages 10–13, this program will expose attendees to the basics of fire making, cooking over a campfire, and preparing correctly and safely for a night outdoors in the winter. The experience begins on Friday at 5:00 p.m. and concludes on Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. The cost of the session is $60 for Great Bay Stewards members and $75 for non-members. Limited to 10 participants.

The Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve’s mission is to promote informed management of the Great Bay Estuary through linked programs of research, education, and stewardship. These programs enhance scientific understanding of the estuary and communicate this information to interested citizens and decision makers. The Reserve’s programs focus on management-relevant issues aligned with four priority topics: land conservation and stewardship, water quality, biological communities and habitats, and climate change impacts and adaptation.
