MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program titled "A Passage Northwest: Birding Alaska by Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Boats," on Thursday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Loon Center in Moultonborough.
Pam Hunt of the NH Audubon Society spent two weeks in August 2012 covering more of Alaska than many native-born Alaskans see in their lives. From the Pacific rainforest to Mount McKinley to remote areas on the Bering Sea, Hunt logged a lot of miles and saw a lot of birds, plus mammals and scenery, and will share her experiences in this slide show.
Pam holds a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College, and is currently an avian conservation senior biologist at the NH Audubon Society. She works closely with the state Fish and Game Department to coordinate and prioritize bird research and monitoring in the state, and most recently authored New Hampshire's "State of the Birds" report. She also coordinated a five-year New Hampshire Dragonfly Survey.
The Loon Center is located on Lee's Mill Road. Follow the signs on Blake Road from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School, or from Route 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn left on Lee's Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.
