Winter/Spring 2018


Spring is officially here, and although it still feels - and looks - like winter it's a great time to be ACTive in the North Country both indoors and out. Wondering what's coming up? 

Take a look:

Our March speaker is being hosted at the Bethlehem Library. Join us to find out how you can attract more wildlife to your back yard. Landaff school's Sigrid Salmela, a UNH Extension Speaking for Wildlife volunteer, will lead the conversation and share tips on how to use natural landscaping for a better backyard whether you have rural acreage or an in-town yard.

Looking to get outside? ACT's 'Shoes & Brews combines fun outside with indoor socializing! April's event is a special one focusing on learning the basics of tree identification. We'll start at the private Wedick Nature Reserve for a snowshoe or walk where we'll learn a bit about how to ID trees without their leaves from ACT volunteer Jessica Bunker and ACT Board Member Marilyn Booth. We'll then head up the hill for a warm up, beverage, and snack at Rek'-lis Brewing at their brand new location in Bethlehem. 

The 'Shoes & Brews series will head to a different property and a new pub monthly so keep an eye out for your favorite place. Register today to save your spot!

For April's speaker we'll be headed to the Lisbon Town Hall. Join us to learn about the American Woodcock, known to some as a timberdoodle, and its multitude nicknames and curiosities. NH Fish & Game's Waterfowl Specialist, Jessica Carloni is leading the conversation. We'll cover the interesting biology of these unique birds, their ecology, habitat requirements, and other fascinating woodcock facts!

All who pre-register for ACT events in 2018 will be entered to win a cool prize later in the year.
