2017 SUMMER HIKING SERIES

WEDNESDAYS JULY 5, 19, AUGUST 2, 16, 30
3:00 - 6:00 Pm

MEET AT ACT OFFICE
729 MAIN ST., FRANCONIA

The series of five walks will take place every other Wednesday from 3:00-6:00 p.m. beginning July 5th.  All programs will meet at the ACT office at 729 Main Street in Franconia, and the group will carpool as available to a different site each week. This year, the summer nature walk series will be led by ACT’s Outreach & Member Services Director Gal Potashnick and an ACT volunteer or two. We also hope to have a special guest host each week who has been involved in the conservation and management of each property.

Participants of all ages are welcome.  Walks will be at a slow to moderate pace with many stops to observe and enjoy nature.  Recommended gear includes long pants, boots or sneakers that can get dirty, a hat, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, and a water bottle.  Nature guide books and binoculars are optional for those who want to learn and see more.

For more information about each property, click on the links below.  For questions about the programs, click here to e-mail Gal, or call us at (603) 823-7777.  Directions to the ACT office are available here.
