Residents and visitors to New Hampshire regularly enjoy the natural beauty of our state. But have you ever wondered what New Hampshire looks like through the eyes of an ecologist? What makes our state’s nature unique?
On Saturday, June 9th, Barbara Fales, a volunteer from the Speaking for Wildlife Program will present “The Nature of New Hampshire: Natural Communities of the Granite State," from 1:30 to 2:30 pm at the Hopkinton Town Library, Contoocook, NH. Library directions: www.hopkintontownlibrary.org.
The presentation, part of the Speaking for Wildlife Project, offers a visual tour of New Hampshire’s natural beauty through the lens of Natural Heritage Bureau ecologists and photographers Ben Kimball and Dan Sperduto. Featuring stunning photos of rare and special plant communities and habitats throughout the state, you’ll learn new ways to look at the natural landscape and find some of New Hampshire’s unique natural places.
Immediately following the presentation there will be a walk at the Ransmeier Trail in Hopkinton, led by Town Forester Ron Klemarczyk. In the event of rain for the trail walk, the Ransmeier trail walk portion will be held on Sunday, June 10, at 3:30 PM.
This program is sponsored by The Little Nature Museum and is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. For more information and to register, contact Barbara Fales at (603) 344-2605 or Sandra Martin at (603) 746-6121.
