Kids of all ages can build a bird house on the spot! And of course we will take a walk.

Our 50th Birthday Bash will conclude with a talk by renowned bear expert Ben Kilham. Ben operates an extensive rehab facility for orphaned black bear cubs in Lyme, NH, where he has raised and released dozens of young bears into the wild over the years. Ben will show slides and video, and describe insights he has gained during decades of close observation and interaction with these intelligent and surprisingly social creatures. Q & A will follow.
