Description: This introduction to the diverse and dynamic rocky shore habitat will excite and inspire teachers and students alike. The program begins with an interactive lesson on the unique ecology of the rocky shore intertidal zones, followed by a naturalist led tidepool session. Students will learn how best to observe, identify and classify organisms through guided exploration. This two hour program includes extended outdoor exploration and teaching time with the naturalists, please plan accordingly. The Seacoast Science Center is located in Odiorne Point State Park. This park offers one of the most beautiful natural settings along New Hampshire’s 18-mile coastline. Within the 135-acre seaside park, visitors can enjoy a wooded picnic grove with a modern playground and miles of walking trails. Most trails are handicapped accessible.

While the park is an ideal location for seaside outdoor recreation, the property is also renowned for its diverse natural history. Seven distinct natural habitats can be visited in a leisurely hour’s walk. Although the spectacular rocky shore is the most popular, the woodlands, uplands, salt marsh, freshwater and salt ponds, and sandy beach (non-swimming) combine to create one of the region’s most diverse nature walks.
