Business Partnerships

Show your support of a beloved family tradition.

For nearly 60 years, Squam Lakes Natural Science Center has enlightened visitors through live animal exhibits, natural science education programs, guided Squam Lake Cruises, an informal public garden, and Blue Heron School, a nature-based Montessori early learning center. Today it is a top attraction in New Hampshire.

Business partnerships and support play a vital role in allowing Squam Lakes Natural Science Center to continue advancing an understanding of ecology by exploring New Hampshire’s natural world. The Science Center offers several ways to become involved, including membership, sponsorship, volunteer opportunities, and philanthropic giving. With over 65,000 annual trail visitors and nearly 9,000 lake cruise visitors, aligning with the Science Center provides companies a unique, engaging, and meaningful way to reach potential customers and positively impact the community.
