Guided by trackers Gerry & Gail Coffey, we will look for track and signs of coyote, mink, fisher, otter, porcupine, moose, deer and bear. Learn how these animals adapt and survive in winter. Tracking is a great way to learn about the diversity of wildlife in the area and gain greater insights about their behavior.
Wear warm clothing in layers, warm socks and boots. Snowshoes, crampons and hiking poles may be useful for this off-trail hiking. Bring water and an energy snack. Meet at Rocky Pond Road parking area 1.7 miles north of the intersection with Route 130 in Hollis NH. $10.

Top Bar Beekeeping Intensive Weekend Workshop
Sat Oct 27 8:30-4 Sun Oct 28 8:30-4 includes breakfast & lunch with organic and locally grown foods.
117 Ridge Road Hollis NH
“I cannot recommend strongly enough the importance and outright fun that this class can deliver. I have signed up for a top bar hive as a result and can hardly wait to roll down my sleeves and become a member of the bee keeping world. If you have ever thought that you might want to know more about tending wild bees and are looking for a perspective that draws the best from age-old practices and explores the newest methodologies of organic bee keeping, this is the class for you. Enjoy!”
“I just attended Christy’s Weekend Intensive bee class and found it to be a perfect introduction to the fine art of bee keeping. Christy’s style lends itself to a class full of exploration into the fascinating life of the honey bee. I learned how important this insect is to sustaining our agricultural and natural systems and how imperiled they are by the same practices that have brought industrial agriculture to the unsustainable place it now occupies.”
If you are interested in attending a Coyote Tracks Survival Skills weekend in the future at Beaver Brook with family members, please call the office or email us to express your interest!
Work of 1000: The Clean-up of the Nashua River
May 2, 2012 6:30-8 pm
Hollis Brookline High School Auditorium.
Free. Donations accepted. Reception to follow.
One person can make a difference. “The Work of 1000″ tells the story of Marion Stoddart, who mobilized clean-up of one of America’s most polluted rivers – for herself, for her community, and for future generations – and, in doing so, became a citizen leader honored by the United Nations. This program, a 30-minute film complemented by a personal talk with Marion herself, provides a gripping profile of an ordinary citizen who realized her power to make a difference. Civic, educational, and professional organizations are using this program to build leadership skills and give people confidence that they can make a difference in crucial social issues. Co-Sponsored by Beaver Brook Association, Hollis Social Library and HBHS Green Club.
