Join NH Audubon as we celebrate the Earth in our 11th annual Festival with a focus on how you can help our native pollinators.  Watch us release a rehabilitated raptor back to the wild with Wings of the Dawn, see and touch a variety of incredible live caterpillars with the Caterpillar Lab, or join us for naturalist-led nature walks.  We’ll also have live animals, drawings to win prizes, ‘build your own bird or beehouse’ kits for sale, games, crafts, live music, and marshmallow roasting at our campfire. Food will be available for sale from Roots Catering.  Visit booths by a variety of earth friendly businesses and organizations and learn tips and tricks to create wildlife-friendly spaces in your yard.  Learn how you can keep our habitats healthy for pollinators and everyone else!
