Chickens, Ducks, and Bugs--Oh My!
- Distinguish different breeds of chickens, including the Americanas--also known as "Easter Eggers"
- Visit with the social ducks and try to mimic a duck call, and
- Find as many bugs as possible...the cows and horses probably have some flies they would be willing to part with!
Join us at Squam Lake Natural Science Center to learn more about the flying creatures we will be studying this year. We will arrive around 10 am. The classes begin promptly at 10:30 am. Pack a lunch so you can stay longer and explore the live animal nature trails with lots of New Hampshire wildlife. After the classes, we will enjoy a picnic lunch together, then explore the trails. Plan at least two hours to walk the 3/4 mile live animal exhibit trail which meanders through open meadows, mature forests, and marsh boardwalks on a packed gravel path.

Rain date is Friday, October 11th.
Join us for a fall hike and bird watching! We will climb South Uncanoonuc via Summit Trail and Walker Trail, which is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail in Goffstown, NH that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The loop trail that leads around the sides of the mountain provides access to five fine ledge outlooks. Although it is tiny even compared to southern NH hills, the prominence and isolation of the two Uncanoonucs make them landmarks on the horizon when seen from nearly anywhere in the state. Smaller hikers are welcome to simply play at the base of the mountain and by the lake.
Trailhead is at the end of Mountain Base Road in Goffstown, NH. Take Wallace Road from a traffic circle on Rt. 114, 0.6 miles east of the southern junction of Rt. 13 and Rt. 114 and 3.2 miles west of Rt. 114A. Drive 1.5 miles down Wallace Road and turn right onto Mountain Base Road. Follow it 0.9 miles to its end at the lake and park at the small dirt parking area near the kiosk.
