Office Manager

Seacoast Science Center

The Seacoast Science Center is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3), science learning center located within Odiorne State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. We provide educational experiences on behalf of New Hampshire State Parks and have been connecting people to the wonders of our coast since 1992. Our live animal exhibits feature the amazing creatures that live in the rapidly changing Gulf of Maine ecosystem. Our engaging programs make learning about the ocean fun for everyone, from pre-K to senior rediscovery. Our hands-on science exhibits motivate families to become caretakers of our blue planet.

Seacoast Science Center Marine Mammal Rescue responds to marine mammals along the coast of New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts (Essex, north). Our rescue work creates coastal communities that are safe for both people and seals. Each seal-side conversation is an opportunity to educate people about the animals and their coastal ocean habitat. One of just 100 federally authorized response organizations, our rescue work contributes critical data for research on the status of these protected species, considered the early warning system for ocean health.

We envision an abundant, sustainable, healthy world ocean. To achieve that end, we are building a blue community in which everyone is an ocean steward who cares for the future of the sea. Through programs, exhibits, marine mammal rescue, and interpretation of Odiorne Point State Park, we teach people, from toddlers to grandparents, about why a healthy ocean matters. We educate to motivate. Because ocean health impacts our daily lives, our goal is to inspire people to make everyday choices that will have a positive impact on the health of the ocean.
