Odiorne Point State Park
|Description: Come to Odiorne Point to explore New Hampshire’s rocky ocean shore. The park’s Seacoast Science Center offers a variety of discovery programs and interpretive exhibits.|
Wildlife to Watch: Odiorne Point is a great place to explore tidepools; search for sea stars, mussels, snails, hermit crabs, rock crabs, and other sea life. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL IN THIS AREA; THE ROCKS ARE VERY SLIPPERY AND SHARP. BE AWARE OF WAVES AND TIDES. Herring, ring-billed, and black-backed gulls feed along the shore. Watch for double-crested cormorants on the rocks, drying their wings. In the wintertime, see rafts of eiders, scoters, and other sea ducks. During spring and fall migrations, observe shorebirds, warblers, and other songbirds.
