The Bretzfelder Family Educational Series continues this Wednesday, August 15 at Bretzfelder Park with a program on the Owls of New Hampshire, as the Forest Society welcomes a naturalist and three live owls from Squam Lakes Natural Science Center.
Who calls in the night? Who glides through the dark on shadowy wings in silent flight? The program will answer these questions and will include a discussion of the habitat needs for the three different owl species exhibited. The Forest Society protects the places where these beautiful nocturnal birds of prey live throughout the state of New Hampshire.
This hands-on, interactive program is designed to engage and educate people of all ages.
The summer Bretzfelder Series concludes August 22 with a demonstration of wild lands firefighting. District Forest Ranger Steve Sherman will lead the demonstration, with wardens from the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands and members of the Bethlehem Fire Department assisting. The firefighters will demonstrate how they use special tools, equipment and tactics to fight wildfires.
Weather permitting, the firefighters will conduct a live demonstration with a fire at the park. More information about the demonstration is on our calendar.
