Spring 2018

SPRING IS HERE!

Spring weather has finally arrived and longer warmer days make being ACTive in the North Country that much more fun! Wondering what how to get out with us?

Take a look:

Looking to get outside? ACT's May Bird Walk is sure to scratch that itch! Join us on Saturday, May 19th from 7 - 9 a.m. in Littleton! We’ll be out on two of ACT's properties, near Lowe’s in Littleton and at ACT’s Ammonoosuc River Wildlife Management Area in Lisbon to see and hear the birds returning to our region including warblers, tanagers, vireos, and thrushes. ACT's Executive Director Rebecca Brown will lead the group and offer tips and tricks for bird identification including birding by ear.

Registration for our walks is required - for your safety and enjoyment we must cap the walk at 14 participants; please be sure to pre-register ASAP as these walks fill up fast. If registration fills up early please reach out to Gal at outreach@aconservationtrust.org to be added to the wait list as cancellations do happen.

A Special Workshop in June!

ACT is hosting another free bat workshop in Sugar Hill and Easton this year! "Bat Conservation & Forestry for Northeast Foresters"  is on Friday June 1st from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with an optional early evening session (4 - 6 p.m.) of mist netting. Attendees will learn about NH's bat species and their ecology, review bat conservation practices that benefit bats, and visit field sites to discuss management techniques for bat- and bird-friendly forests. Participants should come dressed for the weather and prepared to spend the afternoon outside (rain or shine) with appropriate footwear and bug protection. The optional mist netting session will allow participants the opportunity to hear and see forest birds up-close with a local bird biologist.  Register today to save your spot for this deep dive into bat conservation best practices in forestry. Preregistration is required.


Looking for our Shoes & Brews series? We're taking a pause for mud season and will restart this summer. Come back soon to find out where we're headed! ACT's Shoes & Brews series heads to a different property and a new pub monthly so keep an eye out for your favorite place.

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