HOLDERNESS — Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is bringing New Hampshire Day back for a second event on Sunday, May 21, due to rainy weather for the first event of the season. The animal exhibit trail is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the last trail admission at 3:30 p.m. on New Hampshire Day.

New Hampshire Day allows New Hampshire residents to get nearer to nature with discounted trail admission to the animal exhibit trail, as residents only pay $5 for trail admission on Sunday, May 21.

Visitors will see live native New Hampshire animals including mink, turtles, coyote, foxes, bobcat, mountain lion, white-tailed deer, river otter, black bear, owls, hawks, eagles and more in natural enclosures along the three-quarter mile live animal exhibit trail. In addition to the discounted trail admission, special Up Close to Animals presentations will be held at 11 a.m. featuring a skunk, 1 p.m. featuring a great-horned owl, and 3 p.m. showcasing a broad-winged hawk.
