Join Phil Brown, Matt Tarr, and others for a morning of birding and learning at Stone Fence Farm, a property owned and managed for a diversity of native species by professional foresters Jeremy Turner and Laura French. Through slow walking tours in a variety of habitats, we’ll learn tips for identifying the birds we encounter by sight and sound; the ecology and habitat needs of those species; and how the forests, fields, and wetlands we see can be managed to enhance habitat for birds and other wildlife. In between walks, we’ll take a break to enjoy wood-fired fruit pies (provided by Jeremy and Laura) and shade-grown Costa Rican coffee brewed by Ignacio Oreamuno of Troubardour Coffee. Bring binoculars and your favorite field guide to birds, and come prepared for biting insects. Beginning birders welcome!

5:30 to 10:45 a.m. at Stone Fence Farm in Unity. Rain date: June 9. Optional camping onsite and pizza dinner on Friday. Continuing education credits for foresters are available.

Cost: $35/person. Scholarships are available. For more information, contact Miles Stahmann.

Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing or to reserve a camping space, contact Laura by May 31.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, UNH Cooperative Extension, Meadowsend Consulting Company, Troubardour Coffee, and the Forest Stewards Guild.
