Loons of NH

From 7pm until 8pm

New rescheduled date.

More than 350 lakes throughout the state are monitored for loons by devoted volunteers. They collect data on number of adult loon, nesting pairs, nesting success, and chick survival. Dana Fox is a longtime volunteer and coordinator with the program. She will share trends they have found over the years and give us a glimpse into the state of the state’s loon population.

Dragonflies & Damselflies of NH

From 7pm until 8pm

Welcome to the fascinating world of the insect order Odonata! You may be familiar with the dragonflies buzzing over your yard in the summer, or the damselflies that land on your kayak, but what do you REALLY know about these ancient insects? This program provides an overview of the biology and ecology of dragonflies and damselflies, from their amazing life cycle (content alert: some pretty crazy reproductive behavior is involved!) to their incredible diversity. It also highlights a few of NH's notable species and their stories, and closes with some results from the “NH Dragonfly Survey,” a five year volunteer-based project that documented the distribution of these insects across the state.

Dr. Pam Hunt has been interested in birds since the tender age of 12, when an uncle took her to Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge in NJ. She is currently an Avian Biologist with NH Audubon and coordinator of the NH Dragonfly Survey.
