Biothon! Fieldtrip

DEERFIELD —For its tenth Biothon! teams of Bear-Paw naturalist volunteers and Board members will take to the woods and wetlands of the 290-acre Strafford School District easement on Sat., June 14, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The property includes Hill Pond and several streams that feed into the Mohawk River, an important tributary of the Isinglass River. This annual treasure hunt to identify and catalogue as many plant and animal species as possible on a property helps us discover and promote the biodiversity of the lands Bear-Paw works to protect and to raise money to support our Land Protection program.

Contributors to this year’s Biothon! are invited on a family-friendly exploration of the Strafford School District property and Hill Pond with Annette Schloss, a research scientist from UNH. She’ll lead a walk to uncover the creatures living in the pond and in the stream on the property. We’ll provide nets and discovery scope boxes to capture and examine our finds.

This is a trip for kids of all ages! Following the walk participants can join the Bear-Paw naturalist teams at the home of Board member Harmony Anderson for a potluck lunch. Bring food or drink to share and join the party!

Please pre-register at info@bear-paw.org, www.bear-paw.org, or 603-463-9400.
