Hawk Watch at Birch Ridge Community Forest On behalf of the newly formed Partnership for Birch Ridge, Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG) is conducting a Hawk Watch and Guided Hike at the future 2,000-plus acre proposed Birch Ridge Community Forest in New Durham. This event, which is open to the public, is scheduled for Saturday, September 22. It is the first of many outings that the Partnership will provide in the coming months as a way to introduce the public to the project. The Partnership for Birch Ridge Community Forest includes Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG), Southeast Land Trust (SELT) and Merrymeeting Lake Association (MMLA). Those interested may find more information about Birch Ridge Community Forest and Partnership at gallery/birchridge/. The Hawk Watch site on the shoulder of Birch Ridge takes advantage of past and recent timber harvests that unintentionally opened up clearings that provide excellent visibility in westerly and northerly directions, from which migrating raptors can best be observed. At over 1,000 ft. elevation, the site has scenic views of surrounding hills, such as Mt. Eleanor and Rattlesnake Mtn., both of which fall within the Birch Ridge Community Forest parcel, and across Merrymeeting Lake to Mt. Bet, Mt. Molly and Caverly Mtn. MMRG staff member and experienced birder, Virginia Long, looks forward to this event. “It’s fun to

try out a new hawk watching location, especially since we may be the first to try it there. And it’s always great to have many sets of eyes on the sky! Our outing is an informal occasion for birders of all levels. I’ll have handouts of raptor silhouettes to help in identification. I hope we’ll see a ‘kettle’ of broad-winged hawks, where they circle higher and higher in the sky, gaining altitude before heading south, as well as several other raptor species in migration.” The Hawk Watch event will also include an optional short guided walk onto the land led by MMRG Executive Director Patti Connaughton-Burns where, she says, “Participants will get to see firsthand the regeneration of forest after the timber cut, some diverse wildlife habitats, the recreational

opportunities afforded on the property, and the importance of the land to the Merrymeeting Lake watershed and surrounding region.” Information will be provided at the outset about the Birch Ridge Community Forest partnership and project. The Hawk Watch and Guided Walk will take place from 11 am to 2 pm. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, telescopes (optional), sturdy walking shoes, a portable chair, and a snack or picnic lunch. In case of rain, the event will be held on Sunday, September 23, from 1 to 4 pm. All are welcome, but pre-registration is required. For directions and to register, call MMRG Education Coordinator Kari Lygren at 603-978-7125 or email Participants are asked to leave pets at

home. There is no charge, but families are encouraged to make a $5.00 donation that will be fully invested in the Birch Ridge Conservation Fund so that these special events can be continued. The Partnership for Birch Ridge Community Forest envisions Birch Ridge as a community forest, managed to promote conservation, community, and economic development through community participation in the management of the land. A mushroom walk in the Merrymeeting Lake watershed, a foliage hike and other field trips will be held this coming fall and winter. In addition, a Community Visioning Session is scheduled for 6 pm on Thursday, November 1 at New Durham School to get public input on the best uses of the land; there will be a concurrent children’s program. The Partnership is currently raising funds to complete the purchase of the property and steward it forever. Donations to save and steward Birch Ridge Community Forest may be made to any of the three partner organizations: Moose Mountains Regional Greenways at http://www. or by mail to MMRG, PO Box 191, Union, NH 03887; Southeast Land Trust online at or by mail to SELT, PO Box 675, Exeter, NH 03833; Merrymeeting Lake Association online at http://mmlake. org/ or by mail to MMLA, PO Box 468, New Durham, NH 03855.

Plein Air Painting Workshop Art Works-CCAC will host Marblehead artist William Cloutman for a three-day Plein Air Oil Painting workshop on October 2, 3 and 4, Tuesday through Thursday.  In the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to paint at a different  location  in the White Mountains  each day,  beginning with a demo, followed by painting with guidance and tips from Bill. Students should supply their own equipment; some plein air painting experience is helpful.  There are a limited number of spaces available, so register soon to secure your spot for three days of painting, with a fee of $200 per student. A supply list will be sent after registering. Art Works will be offering more fall classes as well, including Observation and Contour Drawing on September 25 and 27; Unique Beading on October 9, and Woodcraft Wonders Class for ages 5 to 10 years on October 19 and 27. William Cloutman, a Marblehead native, has been painting since he was a kid in the 1950’s. He graduated from Marblehead High School in 1963 and went to Vesper George School of Art in

Boston, studying under Robert Douglas Hunter, the last of the Boston School of Artists, and Don Stone. With a degree in commercial art, William became creative director at an ad agency in Boston, but missed the freedom of fine art. In about 1990, William again studied with Hunter, to hone his plein air skills. William has been outside ever since, painting in New England and Europe, solo and leading groups. A few summers ago, William, Frank Costantino, Jack Haran and other artist friends made the trek to Don Stone’s favorite island, Monhegan, to paint together. An acclaimed exhibit on the South Shore followed that outing. William’s work hangs in galleries and private collections far and wide. To register for classes, or for more information, contact Art WorksChocorua Creative Arts Center at  or 603323-8041. The gallery is open daily Friday to Monday from September to December 31, 10 am to 5 pm, or by appointment.  Visit www.

6th Annual ‘CC Mixer’ hosted by Moose Mountains Regional Greenways Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG) will hold its 6th annual ‘CC Mixer’ on Thursday, September 27 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at Nute High School Cafeteria at 22 Elm St, Milton, NH. The evening will focus on Natural Resource Updates to Town Master Plans, with guest speaker Matt Sullivan, Director of Planning and Development for the Town of Wolfeboro. The program will also feature networking, informationsharing, and brainstorming by Conservation Commissioners and municipal officials from MMRG’s seven service towns, Brookfield, Farmington, Middleton, Milton, New Durham, Wakefield, and Wolfeboro. The event is a unique educational opportunity for planning and development decision-makers in these communities and a chance for interested members of the public to learn about incorporating natural resources in planning. A native of Milford, NH, Matt Sullivan took the position of Wolfeboro Planning Director in 2016, after six years as a Senior Planner and GIS Manager for Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) in Rochester, NH. He currently sits on the Governor’s Millennial Advisory Council and the Wentworth Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors. At this CC Mixer, Sullivan will discuss Wolfeboro’s current (20182019) community Master Planning process, which includes an update to its 2011 Natural Resources Inventory (NRI) and considers the impacts of

natural resources on Wolfeboro’s culture, infrastructure, and economy. He will address the town’s use of MMRG’s recently-completed regional Conservation Action Plan and how the Plan has been used to shape the vision, goals, recommendations, and overall comprehensive planning process for the community. Members of municipal Select Boards, Planning Boards, Zoning Boards of Adjustment, Conservation Commissions, and others involved in community development planning are all invited to participate in a round table discussion sharing recent successes and challenges related to natural resources in Town Master Plans. The evening will begin with networking and complimentary refreshments. This event is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required. For more information, call MMRG’s Education Coordinator Kari Lygren at 603-9787125 or email MMRG, a non-profit land trust, works to conserve and connect important water resources, farm and forest lands, wildlife habitats, and recreational land and offers many educational opportunities to inform all ages about the benefits of our region’s natural resources.

The Ossipee Lakes Natural Area - an Area Treasure Otherwise known as  Long Sands, the 400-acre, state-owned property on Lake Ossipee is home to unique pond shore communities of plants as well as archaeological sites that are thousands of years old. In 1995, the EPA sponsored a statewide effort to identify the most important natural resource areas in the state. The Ossipee Lake area was identified as one of the six areas with the highest concentration of important natural resources. The study states: “The Ossipee Lake area overlies the state’s largest stratified drift aquifer, a very significant water supply resource. The area also supports a number of very valuable wildlife habitats. The pine barrens is NH’s only remaining intact occurrence of a globally rare and threatened natural community. There are several globally-rare  pondshore communities, threatened and endangered species, and three tracts of old growth forest

in the area. The region is a large and relatively undisturbed glacial sandplain containing a complex of peatlands and unusual sandplain forests with remarkably high invertebrate and natural community diversity.” The report further states that Ossipee Lake Natural Area has “the highest species richness of any site sampled in NH, with a total of 146 species.” The inland beach strand community is an assemblage of plants which apparently does not occur anywhere else in the world outside Ossipee Lake.” Some of the rare plant species that can be found on the property include: Fine GrassLeaved Goldenrod, Hairy Hudsonia and Sand Cherry. Archaeological research in the area has also revealed a rich cultural history dating back 10,000 years. Studies have recovered stone tools and manufacturing debris, in addition to ceramics and faunal

remains. The research has broadened our understanding of the prehistoric hunter gatherers and Native occupants of the area, and the Ossipee Lake Natural Area remains a significant cultural resource for future studies. Why is it threatened? • Studies by the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) have documented that recreational use is destroying the rare plants and fragile habitat. In one report, the Ossipee Lake Natural Area is described as a state “hotspot” - an environmentally significant property that is seriously threatened. • Sandy pond shore communities are rapidly disappearing around the world due to increasing recreation and development, as well as lack of public awareness. In a 2003 study, the state’s Natural Heritage Bureau reported the demise of three extremely rare plant species that were once plentiful on the property. • The New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) released the Draft Ossipee Lake Natural Area Shoreline and Nearshore Management Plan (http:// in June of 2008. Commissioner George Bald invited comments and has since created the Ossipee Lake Natural Area Working Group. The purpose of this group is to: 1. make recommendations to the state about managing the OLNA and nearshore waters, 2. assist the state

with implementing the final management plan (including communication, education and resource monitoring), and 3. provide an ongoing connection between DRED and the local community. DRED recommends restoring the pond shore communities and rare species as soon as possible to protect the area. They state in their management recommendations that “based on the explicit record of loss of rare plants and communities from the site, the ongoing recreational uses of the shoreline are clearly not compatible with Natural Area designation and maintaining the area’s natural features.” What you can do to help 1. Carry in/carry out all trash and belongings. When visiting the Ossipee Lake Natural Area, please be sure to tread lightly and “leave no trace”. 2. Stay off plants and other vegetation, and stay within lower, open sandy areas. 3. Leave what you find, whether it is an archaeological artifact or plant. 4. Please do not light fires or camp on the beach. 5. Help to educate others about this special place and why it needs protection!

Color interacts with light as a byproduct of the amount of reflected light on a particular object. Interpretations of shadow and light also fall into the realm
