Conservation Center

“I’ll bet a kid from rural Africa could teach you a thing or two about making things out of trees” my colleague said.

It's true. 

The redwing blackbirds were back on Saturday, or at least that’s when I first heard them. 

Summer Drought Effects Include Winners and Losers

Now that autumn has officially arrived, I checked with water and wildlife experts to identify winners and losers during the prolonged drought.

Are you interested in energy-efficiency and the use of renewable natural resources and energy conservation techniques in design and construction?  Do you like to engage others?  We may have a volunteer opportunity for you!  The Forest Society is looking to train some volunteer tour guides to lead tours (school and civic groups from elementary age through college/adult) of our LEED certified Conservation Center in Concord.  We will teach you about all the different energy-saving design elements of this beautiful green building, as well as how to explain each aspect to others.

 The Forest Society is offering guided, as well as self-guided, tours of its  Conservation Center headquarters in Concord and guided tours of the adjacent 103-acre Merrimack River Outdoor Education & Conservation Area

Along the Merrimack River, the plants and animals adapted to river's edge, or "riparian","forest habitats are on display.  

On Friday, May 29, Wendy Weisiger, the Forest Societ's lead forester, and Jake Bronnenberg of Bronnenberg Logging & Trucking led a chainsaw safety course at the Forest Society's Conservation Center in Concord.
