Late May...the New Hampshire landscape's coming alive in more ways than one. Join us for our first annual Birds and Blooms Scavenger Hunt, to be held at the Beaver Brook Association in Hollis. Armed with a checklist and your own pamphlet of the flowers and animals that we may encounter, we'll do a lickety-split survey of one of the most beautiful tracts of land in our state, learning lots as we go. All are welcome to join in the hunt, which is far from cut-throat competition (and no cut flowers, either)! There will be prizes for all participants.
If you've always wanted to put names to some of our state's flora, this is a great opportunity to learn, during one of the most beautiful weeks of the season. We'll meet at 9:00 a.m. at the main entrance off of Ridge Rd. Bring your binoculars, walking shoes (waterproof is nice!), and your best eyes and ears! R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
