PLYMOUTH — PreK-12 classroom teachers, music educators, SPED teachers, early-childhood providers and family members are invited to participate in a special summer institute that will explore the ways in which arts-based teaching in general — and music in particular — can help educators and parents meet the needs of all learners.
The institute takes place Monday, August 12 through Wednesday, August 14. (Hours are 1 to 6 p.m. Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.)
Participants will learn and discuss a wide variety of traditional songs, chants, and singing games, and build simple homemade musical instruments from natural or recycled materials. They will leave with a wealth of new ideas and materials for working with students of all ages.
The institute takes place in Lamson Library, Room 124 on the Plymouth State campus. Cost of the 18-hour institute is $125 for CEUs (includes lunches and snacks), $100 for Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire members. Partial scholarships are available; everyone interested is welcome to attend. Cost for graduate credits is $175/credit, plus $25 for food.

LACONIA — Throughout August, the Laconia Area Community Land Trust (LACLT) is conducting a mailed survey of randomly chosen households in Laconia as part of a national effort by NeighborWorks America.
For 20 years, LACLT has been providing permanently affordable housing to low- and moderate-income households in Laconia and throughout the Lakes Region. LACLT is part of a group of similar nonprofit organizations across the country interested in residents' impressions and opinions on issues such as involvement in community activities, public services, safety, and similar topics.
Responses to the survey will be kept confidential. The mailing is a part of a national effort by NeighborWorks America, which is conducting this survey in approximately 250 communities across the country. The survey will be repeated in two years in order to measure change, if any, in resident perceptions.

CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is urging people to report sightings of hen turkeys, with or without young, from now through the end of August through its web-based turkey brood survey at http://www.wildnh.com/turkeybroodsurvey.
“August tends to be the most important month in the summer survey,” said Fish and Game biologist Ted Walski. “By August, those young who have survived are likely to become adults, so these sightings provide the best index to the summer breeding productivity.”
Most sightings will be of “multiple hen” broods during August. It is common for hen turkeys to join together with their young later in the summer. This joint brood flock will often have poults of various sizes.
“Don't be surprised to observe some broods in August and September with small poults the size of quail or pigeons," explained Walski. "Re-nesting is common with wild turkeys. If something causes nest destruction or abandonment during May/June, the majority of hens will go and lay another clutch of eggs and hatch out in July or August.”
Last summer's survey yielded a total of 1,119 turkey broods reported from all parts of the state between May and August. So far, more than 400 turkey brood sightings have been reported.
The reporting period runs until August 31 and results will be posted on the Fish and Game website this fall. To report your turkey brood observations, go to http://www.wildnh.com/turkeybroodsurvey.
