Creating habitat for wildlife species in need - shrublands and young forests
Friday, 06/16/2017 (09:00 PM - 12:00 PM)

2017 NH Tree Farm Workshop Series Caring for Your Forest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Recent timber harvesting and habitat improvement projects on the Hemenway State Forest in Tamworth created several large shrub and young forest openings beneficial to many wildlife species. As our forests have grown and matured, these young, ephemeral habitats have declined and so has much of the wildlife that depend upon them. Learn about how forest openings can improve the diversity of our forests and create high quality habitats. Join us as we use mist nets to capture birds to learn about their habitat needs. Participants should bring binoculars for bird viewing.

 

Attend one, two, three, or all four of the workshop series.

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.
