Forestry and Birds Hike at Kensan-Devan Wildlife Sanctuary

June 26 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

$8.00 – $10.00

Join Marc Nutter (Conservation Program Director for New Hampshire Audubon), Phil Brown (Bird Conservation Director for the Harris Center), and Steven Lamonde (Ecologist at Moosewood Ecological) to explore NH Audubon’s Kensan-Devan Wildlife Sanctuary in Marlborough during the peak of breeding bird season. We’ll learn how a working forest can benefit songbirds and provide new recreational and educational opportunities. Ecologists and land managers will discuss various forest management and conservation practices that foster a diversity of songbird species while maintaining a focus on other compatible stewardship goals.

 

The tour starts promptly at 8 and will be completed by 11am. Bring binoculars (we’ll have some loaners on hand), plenty of water and a snack, and dress for the weather and insect pests. Be prepared to walk up to two miles including on some rocky and moderately steep terrain. We’ll meet at the NH Fish & Game boat launch for Meetinghouse Pond (second parking area) at the end of Underwood Road in Marlborough. Space is limited and registration is required. Cost: $8-10.

 

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and Moosewood Ecological.
