On Friday, the 4th of July, you will be able to join Erik Hazelton, one of the 2014 summer interns on an Adventure Ecology trip based around New Hampshire plant ecology. Participants will hike through Belknap Woods, and have the opportunity to learn how to identify native plants, learn unique characteristics, learn how to conserve them, and many more fun facts.
The walk through Belknap Woods and around the beaver pond there will give participants the opportunity to come away with better plant identification skills and a new found appreciation for the forest plants around them. Learning how to properly identify the plants in your backyard can help keep invasive and nonnative plants out of our ecosystems.
Participation is free but space is limited to 8 participants. Make sure to register online, call or e-mail to reserve your spot on this hike (603-968-7336; firstname.lastname@example.org).
The SLA will offer a number of other guided Adventure Ecology trips on Fridays throughout the summer. Visit the SLA calendar to learn more.
So much more powerful and moving than a fireworks display....
