September 24 – Local Nature Walks and Trails.   Denis Beaulieu* and Linda Alberts will provide a preview of planned ARA Fall walks and hikes, including views of scenic trail features.

October 8 – Birdwatching Basics.  Your back yard provides a window into the natural world, and there are a number of steps you can take to make it wildlife-friendly.  Join Maine Audubon Society’s Nick Lund to learn best practices for attracting and supporting birds in your yard throughout the year.  

October 15 – Herbs for Medicine, Fragrance, and Pleasure.  Join Wendy Fogg, founder and Senior Herbalist at Misty Meadows Herbal Center in Lee, NH, to enjoy an Armchair Plant Walk.  Get up close with a dozen or so beautiful plants of field and forest, and hear their stories from folklore to modern clinical herbalism.
