On Wednesday, July 31, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust’s land protection specialist Andy Deegan, and Carrie Deegan of the N.H. Forest Society, will lead a Dragonfly Appreciation Event on the 69.2-acre Hiller Conservation Easement at 57 Valley Road (State Route 11) in East Andover.
The Hiller property has prime wetlands and important frontage on Sucker Brook and its tributaries. It offers varied wildlife habitat including forest, wetlands and small fields - some ranked as among the best in the state. The Deegans will share their love and knowledge of the life history and value of local dragonflies and damselflies.The walk will be easy and is appropriate for everyone – including children of all ages. Bring normal hiking attire and an insect net if you have one. The event will include catching individual “dragons” for identification purposes and releasing them once photos are taken. Light refreshments will be served. This walk is dependent on the weather, so call Ausbon Sargent’s office [masked]) if you have any questions.
