Saturday, September 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Join nature preserve staff for the fifth leg of a hiking series that celebrates the opening of the Wantastiquet-Monadnock Trail. You will hike about 4 miles through woodlands in Swanzey and Keene, N.H., that are prime wildlife habitat and be introduced to new interpretive markers in the preserve. Bring water and lunch; be prepared for moderately strenuous inclines, occasionally muddy trails, and lots of fun! Please register in advance, to help with arranging free shuttle transportation.

Presented by: Wantastiquet-Monadnock Trail Coalition, Monadnock Conservancy, and Horatio Colony Nature Preserve.
Location: Meet at the Horatio Colony Preserve on Daniels Hill Road.

Picturesque Ponds & Laughing Loons: 29th Annual Celebration

Our annual event is a wonderful chance for you to connect with friends and celebrate what your support has accomplished in the past year and what will unfold in the upcoming months. This year's keynote presentation is by nature photographer John Rockwood. Often called “The Loon Man,” he will share stories of his adventures with common loons on New Hampshire lakes and ponds in a multimedia show featuring video clips of seldom seen loon behaviors. His spectacular photographs will wow you, and you’ll have a chance for Q&A. Event sponsored by The Frank Massin Agency. Free and open to all; bring a friend!
