ConnCorki- Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 06/22/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

A homemade boat of wine corks sails the length of the Connecticut River, from Pittsburg to the sea.

Presenters: Pan van der Laan, MD, & Bob Fink, DNG.

When it comes to what floats your boat there are many possibilities. For a retired North Country doctor it is literally corks.  About 65,000 wine corks are keeping his home-built catamaran afloat.  Dr. van der Laan says he got the idea years ago.

 

“I picked up an article in Ocean Navigator magazine in the late 1990s that said something about a cork boat and I said ‘Ah ha. A cork boat down the Connecticut River from source to sea would be the perfect project.”  Van der Laan and fellow sailor Bob Fink, who helped build the catamaran. Named ConnCorki after the river they hoped to navigate, the corks that float it, and an homage to Kon-Tiki, the balsa wood raft of Norwegian adventurer Thor Hyerdahl, used to cross the Pacific in 1947.

 

Some testing was done in the First Connecticut Lake in Pittsburg.

“I mean that was a little harrowing we got into some 20 knot winds and we damn near capsized.”

Most of the corks came from a wine tasting room at Cheers in Boston but Van der Laan said some patients contributed and he helped, too.

 

Come join these two intrepid sailors, as they navigate their unique craft from Pittsburg to the sea.

Trouble in the Presidentials - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 06/29/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

What a Mountaineering Accident Can Teach Us About Decision Making and Managing Risk

Presenter: Ty Gagne

 

Although strikingly beautiful, Mount Washington and the surrounding Presidential Range hold the dubious distinction of having “the world’s worst weather.” The Presidential Range is also world-renowned for the challenging terrain it provides for alpinists, and as such, has been the scene of hundreds of mountaineering accidents over the years. Ty will provide an in-depth analysis of a recent tragedy on the range and extend those lessons and others learned above tree-line into your roles as outdoor enthusiasts, and in your day to day lives.

 

Ty Gagne, Chief Executive Officer of Primex3, has held executive positions in the municipal, non-profit, and healthcare sectors. Ty holds a Master of Public Administration from the University of New Hampshire and a Bachelor of Science from Granite State College. Ty is a member of the Leadership NH Class of 2013, and is the co-founder of Leadership Central NH. Ty completed the program for Senior Executives in State and Local Government at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. He holds the Associate in Risk Pool Management (ARPM) and the Associate in Risk Management for Public Entities (ARM-P) designations. He is also a certified Wilderness First Responder.

State of New England's Native Plants - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/06/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Challenges and Opportunities for Conserving New Hampshire Habitats

Presenter: Elizabeth Farnsworth, New England Wild Flower Society

 

New England Wild Flower Society recently released a comprehensive, peer-reviewed report that, for the first time, gathers the most up-to-date data on the status of plants on the New England landscape. From this data, we can discern increases and declines in both rare and common species across all six states.

 

We will discuss the report findings, with particular emphasis on rare and common plants of New Hampshire and their importance in supporting other organisms and in providing ecosystem services for humans. We identify hotspots of rare plant diversity, and discuss factors that foster this diversity. We document the primary ecological and anthropogenic threats to both rare and common species. We discuss activities and initiatives by New England Wild Flower Society and its partner organizations to conserve and manage rare plants and habitats throughout the region. We articulate a research agenda to bridge gaps in our knowledge of plant species and ecological communities and develop a framework for protecting the viability of thousands of species that together comprise our diverse and vibrant flora. Most importantly, we offer recommendations for steps we all can take—as individuals and at community and national levels—to promote conservation.

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.

Hands on with today's forest insects and diseases
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!
