Visit to Ponemah Bog!

  • Massabesic Audubon Center 26 Audubon Way Auburn, NH, 03032 United States (map)

Harriers' Coordinators Phil Brown and Katrina Fenton scan the river during the May Birdathon. 

Discover Ponemah Bog Wildlife Sanctuary with Phil Brown, Harriers Coordinator and NH Audubon's Director of Land Management. Phil will share stories and science behind some of the wildlife, plants, and unique features of this beautiful natural area. A refurbished bog boardwalk leads across the bog mat to an open pond: here, species from northern and southern zones meet to create a living ecological museum. With bird migration in full swing, there will be no shortage of things to see!

While this trip is open to adults from the NH Audubon community as well, it promises to be a great outing for kids and families. Walking is level and not particularly strenuous. Bring good shoes and your binoculars! You can read more about the Ponemah Bog area here.

After the walk, consider staying to hear acclaimed author and naturalist Bernd Heinrich speak about his experiences with birds. Dr. Heinrich will address the NH Audubon community at their Annual Meeting. (While the morning walk is free, there is a charge for tickets to the later events. Click here to see more details.)

We'll meet at the Massabesic Audubon Center at 9 a.m. If you're interested or have more questions about the morning, R.S.V.P. to Phil Brown at pbrown@nhaudubon.org.
