The Whip-poor-will - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

 

Join us for a presentation by Pamela Hunt. The eastern whip-poor-will was once a familiar bird across much of New Hampshire.  Today it is rare except in a few scattered locations.  Pam is an expert on whip-poor-wills.  She will present a slide program that will show us this interesting bird of the night and inform us about its conservation, ecology, and the research conducted to better understand this unusual species.  Pam is an avian conservation biologist with NH Audubon.  She became interested in birds as a youngster when an uncle took her birding.  She has degrees from Cornell, Univ of Montana, and a PhD from Dartmouth College.  She coordinates and prioritizes bird research and monitoring in NH.  She is also active in dragonfly monitoring and mapping.

Field trip to follow.

 

This program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.  Come early and bring a picnic supper, or climb the Fire Tower for one of the best views north of the notches. 

Location

  • Weeks State Park, Weeks State Park Road, Route 3, Lancaster, NH, 03584

Nature Sounds of the Night Field Trip - Weeks State Park Event
(08:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

This night field trip will begin at the summit lodge at the Park immediately following the 7 PM indoor slide program on whip-poor-wills.  The group will travel in cars to a local site known to be used by whip-poor-wills where we hope to hear them singing at dusk.  Later we will go on to other sites to discover and learn about additional sounds of the night.  The trip is expected to last 2 to 3 hours, weather permitting. Pam Hunt will be our interpretive guide for this trip.  She is an avian conservation biologist with NH Audubon.  She has extensive education and experience with the birds, insects and other fauna of New Hampshire.

 

This program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.  Come early and bring a picnic supper, or climb the Fire Tower for one of the best views north of the notches.

Secrets of Porcupines - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

 

Porcupines are often misunderstood because of their interactions with people and pets. Manley will help to clear up some of these misunderstandings in this presentation.  Manley is an avid naturalist and outdoorsman and has tracked porcupines to their winter denning areas.  Manley will cover many common questions and misperceptions. Why do porcupines gnaw on buildings? Do they den together? Can they throw their quills? What is a young porcupine called?

 

Manley has a degree from Reading University in the United Kingdom and has spent the last 28 years working for the Forest Society at The Rocks Estate in Bethlehem, New Hampshire.  He moved to the United States in 1985 with a passion for the outdoors, natural history and cultural history. His programs are based on first-hand observation and experience of wildlife out in the field.

 

This program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.  Come early and bring a picnic supper, or climb the Fire Tower for one of the best views north of the notches.

The Monarch Butterfly - Weeks State Park Event

In view of recent disturbing news about the perils facing the monarch butterfly, we have asked Lincoln Brower to return to New Hampshire to give us an update on this well-loved butterfly.  Brower has spent much of his life studying the monarch butterfly and will share his knowledge with us.  Starting in 1954 as a Yale graduate student, he has continued a deep commitment to the conservation of this extraordinary insect.  Brower has published over 200 scientific papers on the monarch butterfly and has worked tirelessly in Mexico to educate and help Mexicans save local forests critical to the survival of the monarch butterfly.  Brower is Distinguished Service Professor of Zoology Emeritus at Univ. of Florida and Research Professor of Biology at Sweet Briar College and works closely with NASA and Univ. of Mexico.
