Join Mike Gagnon and Matt Tarr of UNH Cooperative Extension for a relaxed ramble focused on winter tree identification. We’ll examine branching, buds, and bark while the leaves are off the trees, and discuss how each species functions as habitat for wildlife.
Every winter for 50 consecutive years, volunteers have scoured a 15-mile diameter circle in the Peterborough-Hancock area for birds as part of the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) – the largest and longest-running community science project in the world. In addition to the teams who fan out in the field, birds are also tallied at backyard feeders.
Join Jeremy Wilson and Susie Spikol for an afternoon of exploring the trails at Cathedral of the Pines, where we’ll learn about the connections between forest ecology and wildlife. Michelle Lowe, Executive Director of Cathedral of the Pines, will also share the human history of this remarkable site.
Every February, people around the world count birds in their neighborhoods as part of the Great Backyard Bird Count — an annual survey that helps scientists better understand global bird populations. Join the fun by counting at the Harris Center bird feeders with our Bird Conservation Director, Phil Brown.
