Birds of Alaska presentation at Loon Center Thurs.

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.

LRGH Nursery Guild makes donations to charities

LACONIA — Members from local charities recently accepted donation checks from the LRGH Nursery Guild. The Nursery Guild was able to donate $500 to the following: Twin Rivers Food Pantry in Tilton, St. Vincent DePaul Food Panty and Angel Fund, St. Josephs Food Pantry in Belmont, LPD Family Fund and New Beginnings, as well as $1,000 to the Santa Fund.
The LRGH Nursery Guild is a non-profit organization that exists to raise funds for women's and children's services in the Lakes Region area. These fund are raised at the semi-annual Baby/Children's Boutiques that are held each year in April and October. The Boutiques continue to raise over $10,000 each year. This allows the organization to give back to our communities and local hospitals when the need arises. Without the ongoing hard work and dedication of the members and volunteers these events would not be able to be held semi-annually.

The LRGH Nursery Guild would like to express' their sincere appreciation to the Laconia Community Center for allowing the use of their facility, the volunteers from the J. Jill company and many other members and volunteers that contribute many hours of their time over a 4 day period.

The LRGH Nursery Guild is always accepting new members, if you are interested in becoming a member, would like to volunteer at one of the boutiques call 524-3211 ext.3018 or email nursery This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
