Nature Activities

Unparalleled adventure in the great outdoors is a prime reason to plan a New Hampshire vacation. Up-close encounters with flora and fauna will foster your appreciation for the diversity of our natural world. And at nature centers throughout New Hampshire, you can explore exhibits that will teach you more about the animals, trees, plants, and natural phenomena you've observed.

Women who want to embrace their wild sides can register for skill- and confidence-building workshops offered by New Hampshire BOW: Becoming an Outdoors-Woman. These hands-on courses are so popular that they often fill up just days after they're announced.

Kids love playing nature detective, so share these guides with your young travel companions. When one of your offspring spots a peregrine falcon swooping overhead while you're trying to quietly point out a speckled fawn bounding through the brush, you won't miss either breathtaking sight.

Animal Sightings. Whether you're on a wildlife-viewing quest or you just want to be alert to the possibility of sighting a moose or other cool creature, we'll clue you in on how to respectfully and safely stalk wild animals large and small.

Nature Centers. Visit a nature center before you set out on a walk or hike, or after your trek, to learn more about New Hampshire's natural wonders. It's a fun and educational way to spend a day, rain or shine.
