Summer Research Recap

From 7pm until 8pm

It’s not our usual August EcoForum, but we still want to share all the great work our interns have been undertaking this field season. Join us for an overview of work done on the brook trout habitat restoration project, what birds utilize the Rockwell Sanctuary as summer breeding ground, and our efforts to share all of this work with both the general public and research community. It has definitely been a much different season than most, but we’ve made the most of it and what to share that with you!

August Shorebirds

From 7pm until 8pm

Shorebirds begin migrating south in late June, with a peak occurring in New England around the third week of August. We'll discuss migration routes, key habitats and field marks for easier identification of common species. While we won’t be leading a field program to the coast this year, we will share the hot spots so you can check them out on your own if you’d like! Led by Will Broussard.

Saturn & Stars Astronomy Field Program

From 8pm until 9:30pm

At Jackson Field Station

See the rings of Saturn! Join Teacher Naturalist Matt Maloney for an introduction to the late summer night sky. Utilizing a telescope and laser pointer we’ll look at the amazing rings on Saturn, see the crescent moon as it sets and navigate our way through the celestial dome by learning the late summer constellations. All of this will take place at Tin Mountain’s beautiful hill top location at our conservation property in Jackson, with the evening silhouette of Mount Washington as our backdrop.  Matt will also tell some of the stories behind the constellations names and show how observing the zodiac can serve as a way of marking the earth’s journey around the sun. It should be a fun evening!

Space is limited. Reservations required; call 447-6991. Rain/cloud dates of August 23 or 24
