Calendar of Events
Join Harris Center naturalists and parent educators from The Grapevine and The River Center for three mornings of child-centered, unstructured outdoor winter play. While your little ones build snow forts and sculptures, slide like otters, and practice using snowshoes, you’ll have a chance to talk with other parents and caregivers.
Join Jeremy Wilson and Susie Spikol to explore the highlands of Dublin from the beautiful Beech Hill trail network. Along the way, we’ll discuss the natural history of trees in winter and search for tracks, scat, and other evidence of our wild neighbors.
Roads are so ubiquitous that they’re practically invisible to us, but wild animals experience them as entirely alien forces of disruption. Join us for a special evening with award-winning environmental journalist and author Ben Goldfarb as he discusses his newest book, "Crossings: How Road Ecology is Shaping the Future of Our Planet."
Are you a teenager or tween with an interest in birds and birding? Join a growing movement of young adults who are honing their wildlife observation skills, learning to recognize birds and their calls, and spending time outside building community with other young birders.
Every year, the Harris Center trains community scientists to serve on Salamander Crossing Brigades at amphibian road crossings throughout the Monadnock Region. Attend this fun, information-packed volunteer training to join their ranks – or simply to learn more about the remarkable spring amphibian migration.
Join local environmental artist Sarah Wilson for this morning workshop to learn some tips and techniques for creating outdoor mandalas using only natural materials. Once we’ve gone over the basics, we’ll work as a group to make one large mandala, leaving our creation for others to enjoy as wind, sun, rain, and local critters slowly reclaim it.
