Beyond Our Shores: A New Look at the New Hampshire Isles of Shoals Thursday, 4/25 at 7 PM

Star Island CEO Joe Watts will speak about how the Shoals are steeped in history, but they are also vibrant today,  and with sustainable efforts will be an offshore gem well into the future. He will discuss their Green Gosport Initiative and their hopes to move to a comprehensive solar power solution.

Visiting Star Island is like stepping back in time, yet in another way technology and invention can be found everywhere.

He will speak about what specific programs Star Island has to offer Rye and seacoast residents this year and any discounts that will be offered.

Sue Reynolds, founder and head of Light House Kids will speak about efforts to preserve the lighthouse as well as Seavey and Lunging Islands.

Sue is also the skipper of the “Uncle Oscar” which takes daily trips to Star island from Rye Harbor.

With all that has been publicized about the lore of these unique coastal islands there are still many coastal residents who do not know their history, or have never visited the Isles. This is their chance to discover local history and plan a day or week excursion right in your back yard.
