Woodlands, Wetlands, and Wildlife Tour - Boscawen, NH
Sun, April 23, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Join Five Rivers at our first conserved property in Boscawen and explore John and Barbara Keegan’s 81 acres of well-managed woodlands and the amazing wetlands that make this property a magnet for wildlife, including moose, bear, coyote, bobcat, nesting red-shouldered hawks, turkeys, red and gray foxes, otter, barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, weasels, beaver, fisher, and many more.
Presenters: Ruth Smith, Environmental Educator and Concord Monitor columnist; and Amanda Stone, Cooperative Extension’s Land Conservation Specialist, will help us learn how the woodlands and wetlands combine to attract wildlife habitat on the property.
The Keegans live sustainably on this land, producing maple syrup, firewood, and other wood products. They conserved their land in 2016 as part of their commitment to sustainable living. Five Rivers coordinated the conservation process and holds the responsibility to monitor land uses to ensure that the property remains conserved – forever. The Keegan’s property is adjacent to the Woodman Forest, conserved by the Forest Society, creating a block of nearly 200 conserved acres.
Participants will meet at a central location and Five Rivers will provide a shuttle to and from the property.
This is a family friendly event, but please leave your pets at home due to the shuttle arrangements and at the request of the landowners.
Refreshments will be available after the tour.
Space is limited! Registration is required by Thursday, April 20
Suggested donation: $5 at the event
