    • About

      Come and get Nearer to Nature! This is wonderful place to discover New Hampshire's natural world. Our Gephart trail features interactive, hands-on live animal exhibits designed to provide an fun perspective of NH ecology. Kids love the giant spider web, slides, and other activities at our Gordon Children's Center, and our popular guided boat tours on pristine Squam Lake offered daily are also a great way to enjoy your time here at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center.
