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 field, forest, and wetland habitats, we’ll learn:

  • tips for identifying the birds we encounter by sight and sound;
  • the ecology and habitat needs of those species;
  • how past timber and field management have created habitat opportunities for birds; 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 coffee (provided by Troubardour Coffee). Beginning birders welcome!

10:45 a.m. at Stone Fence Farm in Unity. Bring binoculars and your favorite field guide to birds, and come prepared for biting insects.

Cost: $20/person. Continuing education credits for foresters are available.

Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, please contact Phil.

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