Did you forget?!? Way back in April, the Harriers met to brainstorm about a wildlife-friendly garden to be planted at the Peterborough Community Center. Well now the time has come to create it! Conceived as a memorial to the late Rick and Duffy Monahon, long-time active conservationists and pillars of the Peterborough community, the garden will take shape under the eye of Francie Von Mertens, who will guide us as we rough out the landscaping and install the first plantings at the site. There will also be time conduct an informal survey of wildlife in the area; when next year rolls around, we'll see if these small changes in the landscape draw in new species of birds, insect pollinators, and other animals.

We'll meet at 9 a.m. at the Peterborough Community Center on Union St. Dirt will be flying, so dress accordingly! And we'll have an informal lunch after we're done around noon--pack a sandwich and stay for the picnic.

R.S.V.P. to nhyoungbirders@gmail.com if you're thinking about coming--even if you've never been to a Harriers event before, we'd love to have you!
