Applications now available for M'boro Adopt a Spot

MOULTONBOROUGH — Applications for the Moultonborough's Adopt A Spot and Community Garden program are now available. Adopt A Spot applications must be submitted by Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 2 p.m. Those interested in the Community Garden are urged to apply at their first opportunity as space is limited and interest this year has already been strong.

Under the Adopt a Spot program participants prepare a planting plan for approval and plant and maintain the spot throughout the summer months into early fall. Last year some eight local business, families, and service clubs beautified prominent public locations in town ranging from the Town entry sign at Center Harbor to the larger scale Sutherland Park. The participants all are given recognition with a nameplate at the spot and there is a judged award at the end of the season.

Under the Community Garden program participants can plant and tend to a twenty by thirty plot at the Town's common garden at the Lions Club on Old Route 109. The plots are being fully tilled by the Town and provided with compost and water for the $60 per plot application fee which is used to offset the town's costs.

Applications for both programs may be obtained at the Town Offices or on line at www.moultonboroughnh.gov. Click on Paid, Volunteer and Contract Opportunities for the Adopt A Spot program or click on Town Committees and Community Garden Committee for the Community Garden applications.

Archaeology field school set for Holderness this summer

HOLDERNESS — An archaeology field school will study an approximately 4,000-year-old Native American site near Squam Lake in Holderness this coming June and July.

One of the main objectives of the field school is to determine when Native Americans may have lived at the site and how they may have used it.

Coordinated through the Division of Historical Resources' New Hampshire State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP), the field school will conform to archaeology standards set by the National Park Service. State Archaeologist Dr. Richard Boisvert will direct all fieldwork and instruction.

Volunteer participants and those seeking graduate or undergraduate credit through Plymouth State University may register for any of the three two-week sessions: June 22-July 3, July 6-July 17 and July 20-July 31. Fieldwork will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

Field school participants will learn fundamental recovery and documentation techniques as well as basic artifact identification and field laboratory methods. Hands-on instruction in the field, background readings, and evening lectures by various affiliated scholars are all part of the experience.

Volunteers will receive the same instruction as credit students. There is no fee to participate as a volunteer, however, a $40 donation to defray the cost of supplies and instructional materials is suggested.

Advance registration is required. For more information and to register, visit http://www.nh.gov/nhdhr/SCRAP.htm and click on "Upcoming Events & Opportunities," then "SCRAP Field School 2015" or contact the N.H. Division of Historical Resources at 603-271-6433.
