Spring Migrant Birding along Ct River

Saturday, April 15
6:30 – 9:00 am

UVLT will co-host a spring migrant watch with Hanover Conservancy and the Mascoma chapter of NH Audubon. We’ll start in Hanover at Wilson’s Landing and travel north along River Road to Lyme’s Grant Brook looking for waterfowl and other early migrants. Meet in the Dartmouth Printing parking lot on NH Rt. 10 next to Hanover’s Richmond School.

Free and open to the public. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. All skill levels welcome. Walking conditions are level traveling over mostly paved surfaces.

To be led by Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee member George Clark, Gail McPeek from The Hanover Conservancy and Jason Berard from the Upper Valley Land Trust. For folks who are interested, we may also take a walk up to Lyme Hill from Grant Brook and see if any of our woodland bird neighbors have returned(most years we hear a Louisiana waterthrush!).

Training Session for New Volunteers

Up on the Hill Conservation Area
Saturday, April 22
8:30 am – 2:30 pm

Do you like hiking off-trail? Do you enjoy visiting beautiful places? Join the Upper Valley Land Trust’s team of volunteer easement stewards to monitor conserved properties all over the Upper Valley! Stewardship volunteering involves meeting landowners of conserved land, hiking off-trail to find property boundaries with a map and compass, and recording what you see as you become our eyes and ears on permanently protected land.
This training includes general easement information and instruction on using a map and compass with plenty of time for hands-on field practice. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, or for more information, please contact UVLT at (603) 643-6626 or email contactus(at)uvlt.org
