Enjoy Some You-Time

At NHW, you will enjoy a casual week filled with art, music, birding, island walks, parlor games, entertainment, family-style dining, thought-provoking talks and discussions, and spiritual inspiration.  Or, you might want to pull up a chair with your favorite book and relax all week.  There’ll be a chair on the porch waiting for for you.

The Perfect Surrounding

Natural History Week takes place on Star Island, one of the Isles of Shoals.  It is approximately 9 nautical miles from Portsmouth, NH.  

Our focus

What brings us together each year is a mutual appreciation of the natural world and concern for the sustainability of our plant.   Each year, our theme topics and speakers change.  Our 2020 speaker is Colin Woodard.

What to expect on your visit to Star Island.
