Lackie Picnic & Hike at Lackie Lone Oak Trail
Saturday, June 19, 11am - 1pm
Lackie Farm, Bath, NH

The 2009 conservation of the Lackie Farm by UVLT preserved scenic views along the Connecticut River National Scenic Byway and of Woodsville from "The Lookout," a ridgetop clearing that the Lackies have kept open to the public. The moderate hike up to "The Lookout" is well worth it for the view.

Join Sara Cavin, UVLT Conservation Project Manager, on a hike on the property. Bring your own lunch to eat at the lookout at the top. Though the trail isn't very difficult, it is fairly steep in parts.


Parking is limited so please carpool! Park at the gravel pullout along Abbott Avenue, just east of the trailhead (see location A on the map in the link below). We will meet at this parking area, and walk 0.2 miles back up the road to the trailhead to begin the hike up the ridge.

View this map.

Canada Warbler Field Walk Led By Ecologist Dr. Len Reitsma
Saturday, June 26, 2 - 5pm
Bear Pond Natural Area, Switch Rd., Canaan, NH

Dr. Len Reitsma of Plymouth State University will guide a tour of the area on the Bear Pond Natural Area that has been the site of an eight-year population study of the Canada Warbler. He will discuss the findings of this study while showing those who attend different habitats and the way this species uses these habitats. He will also provide people with glimpses of nests of this and other species.

Depending upon the tasks of that day, attendees may also have the opportunity to meet with graduate students and field technicians as they collect data.

This event will be hosted by the Mascoma Watershed Conservation Council.
