Pop Up Walk: Merrimack River Outdoor Education & Conservation Area

Join Forest Society Educator Sarah Kern for a guided walk along our beloved floodplain, right down the road from the Conservation Center, also known as the Merrimack River Outdoor Education & Conservation Area. We will meet at the Conservation Center to learn about the many amazing ways the Forest Society is working to help protect and steward the forests of New Hampshire and then will make our way down to the flood plain for a walk along the river to explore the ever changing environment we are lucky enough to have in our back yard.

About Sarah Kern

Sarah grew up on the east coast while traveling to visit family out west and learned to love the outdoors through camping, hiking and exploring. She joined the Forest Society in 2021 bringing with her over 25 years of educator experience in a wide variety of settings both formal and informal. From public school classrooms to private, preschool to university, Sarah has found that connecting and learning with her community is what inspires her. 

After leaving public school education, Sarah grew the education program at the Center for Wildlife by 70% in just 3 years, allowing the community to connect with and learn about the environment we live in and how our health is intertwined. Creek Farm brings all of her passions together from flora to fauna, history and future, and most importantly the dynamic community that has so much to share! Sarah lives in Strafford, New Hampshire with her two children and a menagerie of rescued animals and can be found skiing in the winter, kayaking in the summer and always looking up to see who is flying overhead.
