Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests for its Creek Farm Summer Series at the Forest Society Education Center at Creek Farm. The summer series will offer educational and exploration opportunities at Creek Farm, a unique property in Portsmouth where the forests meet the tides.

“We are very excited to offer local residents a full summer of talks, walks, art projects and more at Creek Farm,” states Sarah Kern, Creek Farm education program coordinator for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. “The Creek Farm Summer Series is designed to engage residents with the grounds at Creek Farm, Sagamore Creek, and the surrounding land and forest. Over the past year, we really have developed a wonderful community of outdoor enthusiasts through our educational series, by connecting with local experts and getting outside to enjoy this unique coastal property together.”

The Forest Society Education Center at Creek Farm provides a dedicated classroom space for ongoing community programming by the Forest Society and its partners at Creek Farm. Pre-registration is required for all events and limited space is available. The programs are free for Forest Society members and children under 18 years old, and $10 for non-members, unless noted otherwise.

All programs and events will take place at the Forest Society Education Center at Creek Farm in the classroom space, fields, and trails, located at 400 Little Harbor Road, Portsmouth, NH.

Forest Society Members’ Gundalow Salt Marsh Cruise
Thursday, August 18, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Leaving from Portsmouth, NH – Gundalow dock at Prescott Park, 60 Marcy Street, Portsmouth, NH
Directions can be found here.

Be sure to grab your spot, as this popular experience fills up quickly. Enjoy a sail aboard the Gundalow Company’s reproduction of the flat-bottom Gundalow barges that were once prevalent along local waterways. Our partners at the Gundalow Company built PISCATAQUA, a new traditional Gundalow, on the grounds of Strawbery Banke. The programs onboard PISCATAQUA weave together environmental science, history, and maritime heritage, providing a unique educational experience for students of all ages. The strategic decision to build a Gundalow certified by the US Coast Guard, means that, for the first time, the public can sail on a regionally historic vessel. Tickets are $50 for members and $75 for non-members. Ticketed guests should meet at the Prescott Park Dock 15 minutes prior to departure time. The dock is about 200 yards away from the Gundalow Company Office.
