September Watershed Walk-About

Sunday, September 23, 2:30 – 4:30 PM.

wildlife areaPlease join members of the Mascoma Watershed Conservation Council as we explore our latest land acquisition in Canaan NH. The "Rubinstein Land" connects the Herman L. Webster WMA to the Mascoma River WMA, creating a protected wildlife corridor of approximately 250 acres. Bring water and sturdy hiking shoes as some bushwhacking may be in order. Pets are not recommended for this adventure.

Meet at the canoe put in/parking area across the street from the Herman L Webster WMA entrance on Rt. 4 just before Blackwater Rd.
