From 9am until 3pm

Whether you call it larch, tamarack, hackmatack, or Larix laricina, it is our only native deciduous conifer in New Hampshire. Learn about the natural and cultural history of larch trees by joining us for a five-mile scenic walk over easy terrain at the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson. October is the peak time to see Autumn Gold, the larch trees with a beautiful golden color that gives us a bonus foliage season. We expect to see and hear migrating waterfowl, late flowering plants, and maybe see a moose. Bring your binoculars, camera, water, lunch, and dress for the weather. We will visit historic Stanley Slide Brook, Cherry, and Little Cherry Ponds. Much of the five-mile hike will be on the Presidential Rail Trail.
