Over the next four weeks, the Friends of Pisgah will host three events. Mark your calendar.

On Saturday, September 10th, we will hold a work day on the Chestnut Hill Trail. We will be installing two small bridges in the trail, replacing two that have deteriorated. We will meet at the Visitor's Center in Winchester at 10 a.m. and drive north to the Chestnut Hill parking area and walk up the trail to the work sites. Materials will be on hand.

On Saturday, September 24th, on Public Lands Day, we will host a guided hike to an old growth forest stand in the North Round Pond area. We will meet at Horseshoe parking lot a long mile behind the Chesterfield Elementary School at 9 a.m. The walk in to the stand of old growth trees is nearly three miles, so the round trip will be nearly six miles in total.

Bring a lunch and plenty of water so you'll have plenty of energy and will remain well hydrated.

And on Saturday, October 1st, we will hold our annual fall picnic at the Visitor's Center and barn in the park. As usual, food and drink will be provided and we will have a guest speak from the NH Department of Resources and Economic Development, Patrick Hummel.

The picnic will begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m.
