Coming Soon: The Cougar Come to the East - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/27/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Presenter: Susan C. Morse, of Keeping Track

 

There is no question about it.  Cougars are not only being seen in Eastern North America, some are attempting to recolonize their former habitats.  Where once it was flatly dismissed as impossibility in the so-called “developed” east, scientists have now documented cougar dispersals and even occupancy of a growing list of eastern states and provinces.  Join us for a magnificently illustrated introduction to cougar biology and ecology in the broad diversity of habitats where Sue has studied them, from Alberta to the Arizona/Mexico border.  We will also get the low-down regarding the latest confirmations of cougars in the east, including the recently documented suitability of a substantial amount of wild habitats from Manitoba to Louisiana and Maine to Georgia.  It is only a matter of time!  

 

Throughout North America, Susan Morse is highly regarded as an expert in natural history and tracking. Ms. Morse has more than forty years’ experience monitoring wildlife and interpreting wildlife habitat use.  Her research has focused on cougar, bobcat, black bear, and Canada lynx.  She has given workshops on wild felids (cats) and other carnivores to a wide range of audiences, including the public, conservation leaders and professional biologists.

Explore Appledore Island Walking Tour Cruise
Friday, 07/28/2017 (09:30 AM - 03:00 PM)

Spend the day on Appledore Island, one of the nine beautiful Isles of Shoals off the coasts of Maine and New Hampshire, and visit the Shoals Marine Lab. Travel out to Appledore on the University of New Hampshire research vessel, the R/V Gulf Challenger, with UNH Marine Docent tour guides. Investigate the intriguing intertidal creatures and zooplankton collected from the ocean at informal science stations on the boat.

 

On Appledore, explore the natural history of the island with the Docents. Look down to magnificent rock formations of eons past and up to a sky filled with birds that live on the island today. Learn about the plants that withstood the salty sea air to provide colonial settlers with remedies and today supply nutrition for the long voyages of migrating birds.

 

Discover the important role the Shoals played in the fishing economy of the 17th century. Find out about the amazing resort hotels on the Shoals in the 19th century and the people who flocked to the Isles for the healthy sea air. Visit the recreated garden of famous poet and essayist Celia Thaxter, who once lived on Appledore, and learn of her family's life on the Shoals.

 

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy while looking from the Isles to the coast or gazing at the long line of the horizon where the sea meets the sky. Taking an Appledore Island Walking Tour with the Docents is a voyage you'll never forget.

Trail Maintenance for Volunteers
Saturday, 07/29/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

This training has been cancelled due to low registration numbers. The workshop will be rescheduled for the fall.

Do you want to learn how to maintain high-quality trails? This training is perfect for conservation commissioners, local service clubs, land trust volunteers, private landowners, or anyone wanting to keep community trails in good condition. You’ll learn trail terminology, how to assess the condition of existing trails, and how to deal with water, slope, grades, and recreational uses. You’ll get hands-on experience with specialty tools and learn about options for borrowing tools for your volunteer efforts. We’ll cover safety and leading other volunteers, and how to determine if your trails project requires professional help. We’ll also have fun, using experiential learning to make sure everyone leaves with new skills.

 

Rain date is Sunday, July 30th.

 

What to Bring: Clothes appropriate for outdoor field work (long pants, long-sleeved shirt), rain gear (jacket and rain pants if you have them), sturdy boots, comfortable work gloves, at least 2 water bottles.  A bag lunch, to be enjoyed in the field, is included with your registration fee.  Vegetarian options available.

We will meet promptly at 9:00 am at the Chichester Town Hall for a brief overview of the day and to go over some basic concepts. We will then drive to Carpenter Park and spend the rest of the day outdoors on the trail, where we'll also have lunch.

2017 NH Educators’ Summer Summit
Wednesday, 08/02/2017 (08:00 AM - 05:00 AM)

The New Hampshire Educators’ Summer Summit is an annual event where school teams convene for three days to engage in professional development with national and local experts. Now in its sixth year, the NH Statewide Summer Summit seeks to transform education through community involvement and evidence-based reform practices. Through scholarship and mentorship in effective skills, strategies, and practices to implement with students, the Summit gives local practitioners power to transform education and provides technical assistance for sustainability. School-based teams develop and submit an innovation plan, based on gaps in performance data, as a prerequisite to attendance. Throughout the year, on-site facilitation, tri-annual reviews, and quarterly meetings to build capacity for change support implementation of activities to achieve identified outcomes.

 

UNH will host over 500 participants as members of New Hampshire school-based teams at the conference. Daily opportunities for keynote presentations, team meetings, and facilitator interaction are vital components of the program. Participants will choose from one of several strands in multiple breakout sessions.

 

The UNH Education Department is pleased to cosponsor the Summit with the NH Department. of Education. For 100 years, UNH has prepared teachers and educational leaders through research and collaborative partnerships to advance practice.

To enable learning these skills participants will be working in teams on a case project that can be a team member's live project.

'Quarry to Jobsite' Hosted by LandCare Associates
Wednesday, 08/02/2017 (04:30 PM - 06:30 PM)

 

Starting with a walk through the yard, and a quick show and tell about all the varieties of stone available for landscaping, masonry and building, we will feature August ‘Augie’ DeLuca from Rockridge Quarries in Montrose, PA. Augie will present a slideshow and tell us how they produce their large sized, precision-cut bluestone with state-of-the-art quarry and manufacturing processes. From the multi-ton blocks that come out of the mountain, it will be a great opportunity to see the finished products that make up the thermal, irregular sheets of large format patio stone and the precision-cut dimensional bluestone. With over 30 different kinds of wall stone, flag stone, and decorative round garden stone, you’ll see and hear about their New England and Northeast origins and the quarries that produce them. You will also see multiple displays of pavers and hardscape features for both installers and homeowners.

 

This twilight meeting is for professionals and is co-sponsored by NH Landscape Association.

 

A BBQ will be provided, so please RSVP to Shawn Simoneau at ssimoneau@landcareassociates.com, or call 603-743-3559.
