Live Raptors, Bird Rehabilitation - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/07/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Jane Kelly grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, the majority of her time was spent outdoors. Her father had a big influence on her enthusiasm for nature, fishing, hiking and hunting. His appreciation for birds rubbed off.

 

Five and a half years ago she found 10 dead barred owls all hit by cars on the shoulder of highway 101. A heavy heart learning the impact of humans in cars. She felt the need to help advocate for all animals, specializing in raptors. Jane volunteered at a wildlife center where she started in rehabilitation and eventually worked in education with raptors, mammals and turtles for 3 1/2 years. Yearning to gain more knowledge of raptors, she took up the sport of falconry.

 

Fortunate to have partnered with Tim and Selvi Lampman, of Veterinary Emergency and Surgery Hospital of Brentwood, NH. Between their amazing team and state of the art hospital, injured birds receive the best care 24-7. Their goal is to provide realistic care in hopes of getting these birds back to mother earth. Honored to be in the presence of these amazing creatures and educate all age groups in making a difference for wildlife.

Songs of Old New Hampshire - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/14/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Drawing heavily on the repertoire of traditional singer Lena Bourne Fish (1873-1945) of Jaffrey and Temple, New Hampshire, Jeff Warner offers the songs and stories that, in the words of Carl Sandburg, tell us "where we came from and what brought us along." These ballads, love songs and comic pieces, reveal the experiences and emotions of daily life in the days before movies, sound recordings and, for some, books. Songs from the lumber camps, the decks of sailing ships, the textile mills and the war between the sexes offer views or pre-industrial New England and a chance to hear living artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries.
