Bringing to Life
the Magic of the Merrimack
In 1995, Public Service of New Hampshire (now Eversource) entered into
a partnership with New Hampshire Audubon, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department,
and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to form the Amoskeag Fishways Partnership.
The mission of the partnership is to increase science and environmental
education opportunities at the Fishways - which is located in downtown
Manchester, NH - and to enhance public awareness about the state's natural
resources. All four partners continue to work cooperatively to create
innovative, year-round educational programs and exhibitry at the Amoskeag
Fishways Learning and Visitors Center for people of all ages.
This unique partnership allows four diverse organizations to pool their
expertise to bring you new and improved programs and activities at the
Amoskeag Fishways Learning and Visitors Center.
While family programs and school field trips on topics such as river ecology, river wildlife, electricity, hydro and solar power, fish biology, urban wildlife, survival skills, native peoples and history will continue to be offered, new programs - such as outdoor explorations for school and community groups, urban wildlife monitoring for adults and inquiry based science programs and teacher workshops - will be implemented throughout the coming year.
The facility is open seven days a week during the fish migration season
in May and June, and six days a week (Monday-Saturday) during the remainder
of the year.
