Explore Appledore Island Walking Tour Cruise
Sunday, 07/09/2017 (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.

Anyone can take the 8-hour course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. Free training with breakfast snacks, lunch, and course book provided. Participants will receive 8 hours of professional development time with certificates available.

Rockingham County 4-H Solar Competition Build Night
Wednesday, 07/12/2017 (06:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

Training of adult leaders Thursday, June 22 at 6:00 PM, and Wednesday, July 12 at 6:00 PM. Solar Sprint Race Competition on Thursday, August 17 for youth ages 10-14.

 

Please join us in learning more about solar energy by participating in our Solar Competition Build Night, a nationally recognized Solar Sprint and 4-H Makers event. The build night will consist of training volunteers to build model cars powered by a solar panel attached to a motor. Volunteers will be able to reach out to youth members for build nights and start planning for our Solar Sprint Race Competition!

 

As we become more aware of our changing climate, the use of alternative energy becomes more popular and more critical. The NH House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed Senate Bill 129 which was approved as a 222-84 vote on June 1. The bipartisan bill will make solar power more affordable and accessible. 

 

Please contact Rockingham County’s newest addition, Program Assistant April O’Connell at aro2003@wildcats.unh.edu, or reach out to Program Manager Joe Drake at joseph.drake@unh.edu to sign up, or if you have questions. Check out the video

As always, THANK YOU for supporting this amazing leadership and development program for New Hampshire's youth!

Dragons and Damsels of New Hampshire - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/13/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Presenter: Pamela Hunt, NH Audubon

 

Welcome to the fascinating world of the insect order Odonata! You may be familiar with the dragonflies buzzing over your yard in the summer, or the damselflies that land on your kayak, but what do you REALLY know about these ancient insects? This program provides an overview of the biology and ecology of dragonflies and damselflies, from their amazing life cycle (content alert: some pretty crazy reproductive behavior is involved!) to their incredible diversity. It also highlights a few of NH's notable species and their stories, and closes with some results from the “NH Dragonfly Survey,” a five-year volunteer-based project that documented the distribution of these insects across the state.

Friday, 07/14/2017 (08:30 AM - 03:30 PM)

During this all-day, “in the field” workshop, small groups will rotate through seven stations at Fox Research and Demonstration Forest. At each station there will be a unique set of insects or diseases that a specialist will show you, let you handle, and then moderate a discussion of how these pests could influence your forest management. Bring your own samples or pictures of pests or damage you’re seeing in the woods and our experts will ID it. Gather that weird forest insect or damage and stump the experts!
