DEERFIELD – Bear-Paw Conservation is hosting a Winter Walk. 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 held on Sat., February 22, from 1:00-3:30 p.m., at Hinman Pond Preserve in Hooksett. Bear-Paw volunteer Frank Mitchell, a Land and Water Conservation Specialist will lead the walk. On this outing, we will be examining the ways plants and animals survive winter, seeking examples in animal tracks and signs and plant adaptations. The group will 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).
