Explore the Estuary for Kids!

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. β€” Bring the kids along to explore the amazing diversity of the estuary, from tidal creeks and salt marshes to the rocky shoreline on Prudence Island.

Kids will use different nets and search for fish, crabs and shrimp in the shallow waters. Walk the shoreline to see what the tide has left behind and watch the ospreys and egrets hunt for food. This is a great family program!
