Belknap Range talk in Wolfeboro on September 24

WOLFEBORO — Learn about the wildlife, hiking and natural history of the Belknap Mountain Range and its 12 peaks, spectacular views, geologic features and recreational opportunities at a special photo-illustrated presentation Tuesday, September 24 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Brewster Academy's Pinckney Boathouse in Wolfeboro.

The Society for the Protection of N.H. Forests is sponsoring the free event, presented by naturalist Dave Anderson. Hikers and nature enthusiasts will get ideas for new places to explore and a deeper understanding of the Lakes Region landscape. They'll also learn about the "Everybody Hikes Mt. Major" project currently under way to conserve 950 acres of land in the Belknaps, including properties on Mt. Major, Piper, East Quarry and West Quarry mountains.

Light refreshments will be served. The Pinckney Boathouse is on the campus of Brewster Academy, 80 Academy Dr., Wolfeboro. For more information about the presentation, call Brenda Charpentier at 224-9945.
