Helping Us



Nashaway Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society

Nashaway is one of the chapters of New Hampshire Audubon . We provide informative programs on birds, birding, and nature for residents of Nashua and surrounding communities. These programs are free-of-charge and open-to-the-public.  We also lead monthly field trips to birding locations in NH or MA.

Upcoming Events

Ponemah Bog Autumn Plant & Bird Walk, on Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 9:30-11:30am

(Rain date Sunday, Sept. 29, 9:30 – 11:30am). Bogs and fens contain communities of plants uniquely adapted to thrive in a challenging aquatic environment. They also support a variety of bird species by providing food and habitat. Join plant professional Doug Gagne on a walk to learn more about bogs and fens, including the plants which inhabit them. Christine Sheridan will accompany us to spot and identify birds typically found at the bog, along with migratory flocks passing through. Bring binoculars and a magnifying lens if you have them as well as a notebook and a camera. Dress appropriately for the weather. We'll be walking on a boardwalk, so boots aren't necessary. For more information, contact Phil Brown 224-9909 ext. 334 or
