Estuary Education

Estuary Curriculum + Classroom Activities 

From the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this suite of educational resources can help students in any grade, in the classroom or home-schooled, learn about estuaries through hands-on learning, experiments, fieldwork, and data explorations. This is a great opportunity to explore and learn about the Hampton-Seabrook Estuary that is right here, in our back yard.


Seabrook Middle School – Salt Marsh Field Day

SHEA partnered with Seabrook Middle School staff, and Sergio Bonilla, a Wetlands and Wildlife Ecologist with Mission Wetlands, to develop a program to get sixth-grade students into the salt marsh adjacent to the school for a hands-on learning session.  This educational event included a classroom presentation on plants of the salt marsh, field identification activities, observational note-taking, and discussions about the value of becoming active “community scientists”.  For more details and photos, check out this field day summary

Homeowners Resources

NH Homeowners Guide to Stormwater Management

Contains “do-it-yourself” solutions for stormwater management around your home.

Rain Garden Installation and Management

Rain gardens are beautiful as well as functional. Discover the benefits of rain gardens as small-scale stormwater management features and learn how to install and maintain one.

Landscaping At The Water’s Edge

This workbook offers shoreland properties owners (and those working on the property) suggestions for managing drainage, plant selection, landscape design and landscaping practices that benefit water quality and the health of the shoreland ecosystem.

Rain Chains

A rain chain is an attractive solution to roof drainage, directing water in a visible way from the roof or gutter to the ground and away from the home. It can be a beautiful replacement to a more traditional downspout.
