Seabrook - The Science & Nature Center

Education and Information

Much of Seabrook Station's community activities focus on education. Our Science & Nature Center is a well-known destination for schools, civic groups, and anyone who is interested in learning about nuclear energy and the thriving ecosystem that surrounds the plant. The center is especially popular as a destination for local school field trips, offering:

  • Programs for middle- and high-school students on nuclear energy and electricity
  • A variety of educational displays
  • A marine aquarium where visitors can see and hold marine life, and
  • A nature trail featuring a boardwalk almost a mile long that winds throughout the plant's woods and marshland area.

Admission is always free. Tours of the center and the Owascoag Nature Trail are typically self-guided and last about one hour. Please be aware that the possession of alcohol, firearms or explosives while on the Seabrook site is not permitted.
