Sunset hike to Tippin Rock

Wednesday, October 14, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Why not bring a friend, especially a young friend, to tip the legendary boulder, Tippin Rock (yes, it does move!), and discover the spectacular views? Ryan Owens, executive director, will lead this short hike in Swanzey to catch the evening colors at one of his favorite destinations -- Hewes Hill. Total distance is 1.8 miles round-trip, with modest elevation gains but some steeper sections, so sturdy footwear and appropriate dress for a fall evening are both encouraged.

Presented by: Monadnock Conservancy.
Location: Meet in the field opposite Chebaco Kennel, 95 Warmac Road, Swanzey, N.H. Park along the road or on the edge of the field, but please do not block the gate.

“The Private Life of Deer” film showing

Thursday, October 22, 2015, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Just a century ago, there were less than a million deer in North America. Today, there are nearly 30 million. This hour-long documentary, filmed largely in the Northeast, takes a close look at how wild deer interact with one another, and how they’ve adapted to living alongside humans. Following the film, Steve Roberge of the UNH Cooperative Extension will be on hand to answer questions.

Presented by: Monadnock Conservancy, Harris Center for Conservation Education, UNH Cooperative Extension and the Keene State College Film Society.
Location: Putnam Arts Lecture Hall theater, Redfern Arts Center, Keene State College, Keene, N.H.

History hike on Brooks conservation easement

Sunday, November 15, 2015, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Join Archaeologist Martha Pinello and the Conservancy’s Anne McBride as we explore the historical features on our Brooks conservation easement in Sullivan. On our 1.5-mile hike, we’ll see the old Sullivan School House #4, which was in session from 1815 to 1920; visit the site of an old mica mine; enter a cool, dark stone chamber; and take in sweeping views of Vermont.

Presented by: Monadnock Conservancy.
Location: If coming from the Keene area, take Route 9 East. One mile after the Routes 9 & 10 intersection, turn left onto Sullivan Road. Follow Sullivan Road for 0.7 miles after which it will turn into South Road. Continue for 1.3 more miles and look for Conservancy signs to direct you to parking. If coming from the east on Route 9, turn right onto Sullivan Road 1.5 miles after Granite Gorge and follow the previous directions.
