Autumn Wildflower Walk - Weeks State Park Event
(01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

This can be a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy a walk in the woods.  Please join us for our autumn wildflower walk.  We will discover the wildflowers and other signs of nature in the park with the aid of naturalist, Matt Peters.

 

Matt Peters is an independent ecologist and botanist with extensive field experience in diverse North American landscapes from Alaska and the Great Plains to the forests of the northeast. His work focuses on botanical and natural resource inventory, mapping, and management in northern New England. He leads workshops on foraging, edible wild plants and plant identification. In his home community of Plainfield, VT, he is involved in local river conservation efforts, serving on the town's Flood Management Advisory Committee and other non-profit boards. Matt's past work has included researching native grassland restoration practices, and assessing the impacts of industrial forestry and rangeland management practices.

 


The group will meet at the main entrance of the Park at 1:00 P.M. Bring raingear just in case, and suitable footwear for an easy walk in the woods. 

Location

  • Weeks State Park, Summit Lodge, Lancaster, NH, 03584

Growing Mushrooms
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Do you like mushrooms? If the answer is yes, here's another question.

 

Would you like to grow mushrooms? If that answer is also yes, you're in luck because Boscawen Agricultural Commission is offering a workshop on growing shiitake mushrooms.

 

Jim Ramanek, Master Gardener and owner of Warner River Organics, will  show you how easy and fun it is to cultivate edible mushrooms using logs, stumps, and the moist shade of your wooded property or the shaded back of the garage.

 

In this workshop, you will not only learn how to cultivate mushrooms but how to select wood, location, tools and supplies. Jim will present the whole process of drilling, plugging, waxing, stacking, waiting and forcing. You will learn about other mushrooms you can grow and receive information on suppliers for plug spawn.
