Great Bay Estuarine National Research Reserve

Great Bay Estuarine National Research Reserve Review

Just inland from Portsmouth is one of southeastern New Hampshire's most precious assets. Amid its 10,235 acres of open and tidal waters, mudflats you can spot blue herons, ospreys, and snowy egrets, particularly during spring and fall migrations. The Great Bay Discovery Center has indoor and outdoor exhibits, a library and bookshop, and a 1,700-foot boardwalk, as well as other trails through mudflats and upland forest.
