The nonprofit Gundalow Company’s mission is “to protect the Piscataqua Region’s maritime heritage and environment through education and action.” They operate the gundalow Piscataqua, which does public sails, school programs and camps. Through a series of hands-on activities, students get a glimpse of the past 300 years on the working waterfront, and explore issues like water quality, habitat protection, stewardship, navigation. The Gundalow Company also offers a great Science Cafe series each winter featuring local scientists and environmentalists. The Gundalow Company works with many partner organizations, including Blue Ocean Society, on initiatives to increase environmental awareness in the region.
