Environmental Book Group: The Lives of Bees

From 4pm until 5pm

Tin Mountain's Environmental Book Group meets the first Wednesday of the month at 4pm. All are welcome, whether you have finished (or started!) the book

Next Book Group Pick is:

The Lives of Bees by Thomas Seeley

Humans have kept honey bees in hives for millennia, yet only in recent decades have biologists begun to investigate how these industrious insects live in the wild. The Lives of Bees is Thomas Seeley’s captivating story of what scientists are learning about the behavior, social life, and survival strategies of honey bees living outside the beekeeper’s hive―and how wild honey bees may hold the key to reversing the alarming die-off of the planet’s managed honey bee populations.

If you are interested in buying the book, copies are available at White Birch Books in North Conway, including curbside pickup and online options.

Autumn Gold: the Larch of North America

From 7pm until 8pm

In Person Program

Autumn Gold: The Larch of North America (Evening Program)

Tuesday, October 18, 7pm

There are ten species of larch in the world, and all are found only in the northern hemisphere, including three species of larch in North America. Larch breaks all the rules. It is a conifer but not evergreen. It is considered a softwood, but the wood is hard. It has two distinct needle patterns on the same twig. It has a firewood heat value equal to or superior to many hardwoods. It grows best on moist, well-drained, upland soils but is usually found in swamps. We will discuss the natural history of larch, concentrating on the three North American species. We will learn why larch loses its needles in the winter, the best places to see the Autumn Gold spectacle in October, and other exciting facts about larch.

Program fee: $5/person or $10/household for non-members; members are free

Autumn Gold: Eastern Larch Exploration at Pondicherry

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.

Program fee of $15/person or $25/household for non-members; members are free.

Advance registration required. Call 447-6991 or register online.
