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 Nashaway Events

Note: We will not have a meeting on the second Tuesday this month. Instead, please join us in the library auditorium for the event co-sponsored by the Nashua Public Library

Thursday February 20, 7pm Anartica, the White Continent held in the auditorium downstairs at the Nashua Public Library

Photographer Ken Harvey shares his trip to Antarctica, with its stark beauty and extraordinary wildlife. White and blue icebergs glisten in the sunlight; seals, penguins, whales, and dolphins feed and play in frigid water; the albatross soars on a wingspan of 10 feet.  In the Antarctic summer, the sun shines 24 hours a day. There is no other place quite like it. (This program is co-sponsored with the Nashua Public Library)

The VT/NH Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation participates in VT and NH Farm & Forest Shows each year. During the 2020 VT Farm Show in Essex Junction, VT Chapter Board member, JP Powers, was interviewed by WCAY-TV's "Across the Fence" produced by UVM Extension.

On February 14 & 15 Chapter Board members and volunteers will man our booth, number 312, at the NH Farm & Forest Show in Manchester, NH. Please stop and visit our booth if you attend.

These shows attract thousand of visitors so they provide excellent opportunities to educate people about chestnut restoration.
