Events and Happenings

Please follow the Great Bay Stewards on Facebook or Twitter for up to date events.

The Great Bay Stewards are participating in #GivingTuesday!  Help kick off the giving season and make a difference this 11/28 by supporting us and other non-profit organizations on this day dedicated to giving back!  Money we receive will go toward the Blanding’s Turtle habitat restoration project (read more below) and other stewardship work.  Donate via Paypal by using the button below – thank you!

The Stewards have received a funding challenge to help save the Blanding’s Turtle, an endangered turtle found in southern New Hampshire that unfortunately is often the victim of too many cars and too many roads.  The Stewards have been promised up to $5000 in match toward this project.  Find out more about the turtle’s story and our plans to help at
