NH Day at Squam Lakes Science Center
October 17, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
New Hampshire Day has been held annually since 1991. Historically it has helped launch the trail season in May to welcome visitors around the state back to get nearer to nature. Due to the pandemic this year, it was delayed until September. The September event sold out and all visitors abided by new guidelines and rules to keep the live animal exhibit trail safe for everyone.
Attendees for the second New Hampshire Day can expect to see naturalists showing animals at Pop Up Animal Encounters along the trail. Animals at the Science Center are also starting to show off their winter coats in preparation for the changing season.
$5 New Hampshire Day tickets for Saturday, October 17 must be purchased in advance at nhnature.org. The Science Center has capacity limits for the number of visitors on the live animal exhibit. Other changes include, requiring facemasks, physical distancing, one-way travel on the trail, and changes to hands-on exhibits.
Science Center trails (live animal exhibit and hiking) will remain open daily through November 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (last trail admission at 2:30 p.m.). Visit nhnature.org for more information and to purchase tickets.
