They Sawed Up A Storm - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/28/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Join Sarah Smith, author of They Sawed Up A Storm.   In 1942, a group of New Hampshire women operated a sawmill on the shores of Turkey Pond, in Concord. New Hampshire. The sawmill, one of two on the pond, was built by the US Forest Service to saw up what remained of the logs stored in the water from the 1938 hurricane.

 

Sarah will present how she first learned about the women's mill from John Willey, the son of one of the women who worked there. John's mother, Laura, had a scrapbook which was a tattered collection of snapshots and newspaper clippings depicting the women at work between 1942 and 1943. Sarah's book begins with an account of the hurricane of 1938 and the path of destruction it left from Long Island to northern New England. Over 600 lives were lost, cities were flooded and property damaged was extensive. Join us for an exciting adventure through the great hurricane of 1938 and the determination of the group of New England women! Go to www.TurkeyPond.com to learn more.

Loon Rehabilitation - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 08/04/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Join Squam Lakes Project Biologist, Tiffany Grade, for a talk on The Common Loon - Ongoing Recovery for a New Hampshire Icon. Have you ever wondered why little chicks ride on their parents' backs? What loons are saying with those eerie calls in the night? Do loons mate for life? What threats do they face? Tiffany will describe the natural history of these amazing and beautiful birds on New Hampshire lakes and Loon Preservation Committee's work to safeguard this threatened loon population.

 

The mission of the Loon Preservation Committee is to restore and maintain a healthy population of loons throughout New Hampshire; to monitor the health and productivity of loon populations as sentinels of environmental quality; and to promote a greater understanding of loons and the natural world. Since its creation in 1975 in response to concerns about a dramatically declining loon population and the effects of human activities on loons, Loon Preservation Committee has grown to become a leader among environmental organizations working to preserve a threatened species. Loon Preservation Committee's success in protecting New Hampshire's loon population has been attributed in large part to the monitoring, research, management and educational activities of Loon Preservation Committee staff, members, and volunteers.
