GREENLAND, NH — The Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve turns 30 years old this fall, and The Great Bay Discovery Center is hosting a celebration of three decades of research, education, outreach, land protection, and history-making achievements on September 20. At 12:30 p.m., join the Great Bay team and students and teachers from the Greenland Central School as they unearth a time capsule buried 20 years ago on the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve’s tenth anniversary. Students will reveal the contents of the time capsule and include their own predictions for the future of Great Bay before the casing is reburied until 2029. Travel back in time, and bring your own predictions for the future to add to the collection.
The Great Bay Discovery Center is located just off Route 33 at 89 Depot Road in Greenland, NH. No preregistration is required, and refreshments will be provided. Please call the Discovery Center at (603) 778-0015 or email Kelle.Loughlin@wildlife.nh.gov with questions.
The Great Bay Discovery Center is managed by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (NHFG) and is the Education Headquarters for the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, a state and federal partnership between NHFG and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
