Every year, NH Audubon holds its Annual Gathering to bring members together for a day of outings, awards and to celebrate the year’s accomplishments.
The meeting will be held at NH Audubon’s McLane Center in Concord.
The day will kick off with a Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast and the presentation of Golden Binocular awards, followed by a choice of activities, updates from our conservation biologists, a picnic lunch, business meeting, annual awards, and speaker Toni Lyn Morelli’s keynote address, How Climate Change Will Affect New Hampshire’s Wildlife.
A registration link will be posted as we approach the event.
