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.

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)

News of interest for our community
From American Chestnut Foundation
Your VT/NH Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) looks forward to another successful year moving toward our goal: Self-sustaining stands of blight-resistant American chestnut trees growing in Vermont and New Hampshire woodlands
With your continued financial and volunteer support we are making progress as we implement the TACF “3 Bur” approach to chestnut restoration: Biological Control, Backcross Breeding and Biotechnology. One of our priorities for 2020is to prepare our Chapter to implement the Biotechnology approach, if the transgenic chestnut produced by the State University of NY is approved for distribution. This requires finding wild trees that produce viable nuts. These nuts will be harvested and planted in Germplasm Conservation Orchards to preserve their genetic diversity. Please let us know if you find a nut producing wild American chestnut.
Opportunities to meet Board members and learn more about our Chapter’s activities are on the horizon. We will have a display booth at the January 28-30 VT Farm Show in Essex Junction, VT, and at the February 14-15 NH Farm & Forest EXPO in Manchester, NH. Another very good opportunity will be to attend our 2020 Annual Meeting, tentatively schedule for April 25 at the Plymouth, NH Library.
