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 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.
Now the second most climbed peak in the world, Mount Monadnock was revered by the Abenaki, ignored by the first European settlers, and beloved by artists from Thayer to Thoreau. Join us for a special, big-screen showing of this acclaimed local documentary, which uses cinematography, original music, and archival images to tell the story of “our” mountain.
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.
