  • Community Event: BECOMING WOLF with Chris Schadler
    7pm • Jackson Public Library

    • Chris Schadler, the NH and VT representative for Project Coyote and Co-Founder of the NH Wildlife Coalition, which advocates for better conservation for predators, will talk about a topic which embodies her interest in wild canids, ‘Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England’: “An eastern coyote is defined as much by its western coyote ancestry as by its DNA contribution from the Eastern wolf.  “Our” coyotes vary physically and behaviorally from its smaller relative – while still carrying the incredible adaptability and canniness of Wile E. Coyote.  This program takes a deep dive into the ecology and behavior of this creature, its indefatigability and how it is the human who must adapt to live with the ‘One Who Cannot Be Removed’. On the horizon, however, is a native carnivore which fled the northeast during wolf removal and now may be trying to return:  The eastern wolf.  A look-alike to the coyote, it has been killed mistakenly for its similarity of appearance to the coyote. We’ll talk about how the wolf and coyote might negotiate a truce in the northeast and how we might do the same.”
  • Community Event: COMMON LOON
    7pm • Tin Mountain Conservation Center, Albany, NH 03818

    • Register Now
    • Add To My Calendar
    • For many, the haunting call of the loon is an important part of the New Hampshire lake experience. Often seen as a symbol of the northern wilderness, loons are a beloved fixture on New Hampshire lakes and many lake goers enjoy watching them as they raise their young. However, the breeding season can be a vulnerable time for loons as they face many threats, both natural and human-caused, while on our lakes. This presentation will focus on the biology and life history of loons, the threats that loons face, and the work that the Loon Preservation Committee and our volunteers have performed since 1975 to help New Hampshire’s threatened loon population recover.

He will focus on the global impact of the inspirational life and legacy of a 20th century cultural hero whose name is Abbe Pierre. Pierre’s remarkable journey began when he followed in the footsteps of Saint Francis of Assissi and entered a monastery at age 17. There, he committed himself to spreading a global message of giving and good will. During World War II, he joined the French Resistance and risked his own life in saving the lives of Jews who faced the prospect of being sent to labor camps inside Gemany, or worse yet, being arrested and sent to their death in concentration camps.After the war, he focused his efforts on the creation of an international network of community centers to serve the needs of the poor, the hungry and the homeless around the world.
