Winter Walk – Hinman Pond Preserve

This winter excursion to Bear-Paw’s newest preserve, the Hinman Pond property in Hooksett, will offer an opportunity to explore the clues that plants, animals, weather and other natural forces leave behind after a growing season and over time.

This ecological exploration will be led by Bear-Paw volunteer Frank Mitchell, a Land and Water Conservation Specialist. On this outing, we will be examining the ways plants and animals survive winter, seeking examples in animal tracks and signs and plant adaptations. We’ll consider how the forest we see today can inform us about its history and its probable future. The afternoon will also feature discussion of how the collaboration between Bear-Paw and federal and state conservation organizations enabled this large conservation project to be completed. This will be a moderate walk if the ground is bare and somewhat strenuous on snowshoes or skis (bring either if conditions are suitable).

    I have to change to a no go. I was really looking forward to this and hope to join in many future hikes / events.

    Seems like bare ground just isn't in the cards for this Saturday & alas, we don't have snowshoes or skiis for my (almost) 4 year old and myself. I don't think we're up for this one, this time. Looking forward to the next one!

    Sorry, had to withdraw my RSVP. Would have loved to check this out with you, but I had a family event come up in that same time slot. Thanks!!
