EcoForum: The Upper Androscoggin River Watershed - History & Ecology

Nature Learning Center, Albany


February EcoForum: 

The Upper Androscoggin River Watershed - its History & Ecology

Thursday, February 14, 12-1pm

Nature Learning Center, Albany 

Dr. Kenneth Kimball, recently retired director of the AMC's Research Department, is a co-author of the just released 2nd edition of the "Ecological Atlas of the Upper Androscoggin River Watershed". Dr. Kimball will cover how this region's topography and ecology influenced the regions development, the role its once severe water pollution had in the creation of the Clean Water Act, and the impact dams have had in greatly enlarging its headwater lakes and in fluctuating their seasonal water levels. Also discussed will be how some of the region's charismatic fauna like moose were almost driven to extinction and have since made a major recovery whiles others, particularly top predators, like the wolf and cougar remain extinct though the landscape would likely support them. 

 

The EcoForum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway and Frontside Grind Coffee Roasters.  EcoForums are free and open to the public and are presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The community is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.

International Launch Party with Lisa Gardner

Theater in the Wood, Intervale, NH

Lisa Gardner International Book Launch Party
Monday, February 18, 2019 7pm
Location: Theater in the Wood, Intervale, NH

Mark your calendars! It’s that time of year again, when we look forward to a new thriller by award-winning author, and Valley resident, Lisa Gardner. NEVER TELL is the new book and it comes out on Tuesday, February 19. The first place to see Lisa and get your signed copy is the night before at the White Birch Books International Book Launch Party, right here in North Conway.

Lisa Gardner, a #1 New York Times bestselling thriller novelist, began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she turned her interest in police procedure and criminal minds into a streak of internationally acclaimed suspense novels.
