Share this event
Please join us and the NH Audubon, as they celebrate 100 years of conservation and honor those who have helped us get to this point for future opportunities. This year’s annual meeting and gathering will be particularly special in celebrating a Centennial: 100 Years of Conservation.
The Audubon Society of New Hampshire was founded in 1914 as part of a movement to protect and restore migratory bird populations which were declining rapidly due to over-hunting for sport, food and fashion. For 100 years, New Hampshire Audubon (NHA) has built on that early mission, utilizing science based research and conservation, legislative efforts and public education to save critical habitat and threatened wildlife species.
Over the course of 2014, NHA will celebrate this centennial with a variety of programs,events, products and activities. This anniversary is an opportunity to highlight past accomplishments, engage former, current and future supporters and help build a strong foundation to launch the organization into the next 100 years.
The NH Audubon is also honored to present, Keynote Speaker: Author and Naturalist, Scott Weidensaul
Scott Weidensaul has written more than two dozen books on natural history including Of a Feather, A Brief History of American Birding. This book traces the colorful origins of American birding and chronicles 400 years of bird observations to the current explosion of modern birding. Weidensaul is also an active field researcher focusing on the ecology of saw-whet owls. He is a bird bander and directs the ornithological programs for National Audubon’s Hog Island Center in Maine.
Scott will speak about the impact of birding history on birds and people and some of the future trends in bird conservation. He will also be co-leading the hawk migration field trip on Little Round Top in Bristol. He is a regular hawk counter at Hawk Mountain in his home state of Pennsylvania.
