Spring-back-to-life hike

Sunday, April 19, 2015, from 9 a.m. to noon

Join the Conservancy’s land manager, Rick Brackett, and stalwart volunteers Roger and Ann Sweet on a spring hike as life begins to wake from its long winter slumber. We will walk on and off trail at the Calhoun Family Forest in Gilsum, looking for early ephemeral plants, vernal pools, listening to bird calls and hopefully once again enjoying soft earth beneath our feet. Please be prepared for all potential weather conditions, wear sturdy footwear and bring water and snacks.

Location: John and Rosemarie Calhoun Family Forest, White Brook Road, Gilsum, N.H.
