Forestry and Birds Hike at Kensan-Devan Wildlife Sanctuary
Sunday, June 26,
8:00 am to 11:00 am
Join Phil Brown (Harris Center for Conservation Education), Steven Lamonde (Moosewood Ecological), and Marc Nutter (New Hampshire Audubon) to explore Audubon’s Kensan Devan Wildlife Sanctuary in Marlborough during peak season for breeding birds. During our hike, we’ll learn how a working forest can benefit songbirds — including discussion of various forest management and conservation practices that promote songbird diversity — while also providing new recreational and educational opportunities. Bring binoculars (we’ll have some loaners on hand), plenty of water, and a snack, and dress for the weather and biting insects. Be prepared to walk up to two miles, including on some rocky and moderately steep terrain.
We’ll leave promptly at 8 a.m. from the boat launch for Meetinghouse Pond (second parking area) at the end of Underwood Road in Marlborough. Back by 11 a.m.
Cost: $8 per person for Harris Center supporters / $10 per person for all others
