Loon Center Lewis and Clark presentation held Feb 20

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Thursday, February 20 the Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program about "The Lewis and Clark Trail – 200 Years of Changes" at 7 p.m. at the Loon Center.

Most people know the basics of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and most birders know that Lewis's Woodpecker and Clark's Nutcracker are named after the explorers. This program combines history and birding all in one place.

N.H. Audubon Senior Biologist Dr. Pam Hunt has traveled the Lewis and Clark Trail twice, and this presentation stems from her most recent effort in the spring of 2013. See the places that the Corps of Discovery saw in 1804-06 and hear how the landscape and wildlife along their route have changed over the last 200 years.

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 Rte. 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn left on Lee's Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.

Folklorist Rebecca Rule wows MWC


MOULTONBOROUGH — With sixty four in attendance on Monday, February 3, the Moultonborough Women's Club rang with peals of laughter during the performance of Becky Rule, a well known humorist and folklorist. Becky, with an effervescent sense of humor, shared quite a few New England stories and had enthusiastic audience participation. Believing these New Hampshire stories should be preserved and shared, she began collecting them 20 years ago and has over 100 performances each year. A recent highlight in her remarkable achievements was when she was awarded an honorary doctorate from New England College for storytelling and her contributions to New Hampshire. Her performance exceeded expectations and was given a standing ovation. This engagement was made possible by Harriet Bicksler applying and obtaining a NH Humanities Council grant and the public was invited to attend free of charge.
