Join Tin Mountain naturalists as we explore the newly created trail system on the Lori Jean Kinsey Arboretum and adjacent private Bald Hill lands at Tin Mountain Conservation Center in Albany.  Moderate climbs, downhill descents, and sweeping switchbacks await us as we summit Bald Hill, explore hemlock stands, and enjoy unique views of surrounding peaks.  Participants will need to provide their own ski setup (classic-style/touring) and trails are rated intermediate.  Afterwards we will convene at a neighborhood brewpub for fun drinks and appetizers for those interested.  

Backup weather date March 9th.

Small Mammal Populations in the White Mountains

From 7pm until 8pm

At Nature Learning Center

Small mammal (rodent and shrew) populations throughout the White Mountains undergo significant changes in abundance from year to year. However, the factors that influence these population changes are not well understood. Josh Willems, PhD candidate at UNH, has been focusing his research on teasing out the effects of beech mast, forest structure, and climate on small mammal populations utilizing a 30-year dataset from the Bartlett Experimental Forest. Join us to learn more about his findings and what this tells us about the area’s small mammal population.

$5/person or $10/household for non-members; members are free.
