Winter Dance: A Storywalk December 27th-February 28th

Everyday 7am-7pm | Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest | Center Harbor

A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in your community, in this case Chamberlain Reynolds. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

We hope you enjoy Marion Dane Bauer's story where you will meet a variety of animals who are busy preparing for winter. Discover how fox decides to celebrate the coming of the snow. Richard Jones' beautiful illustrations bring this forest community to life. As you walk along while reading the story, remember to look for animal signs along the trail!

The StoryWalk will be up from Wednesday, December 15th-Monday, February 28th.

Location: Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest West Parking Lot, College Rd, Center Harbor, NH 03226, USA.

From the magical evocation of the carousel in the overture to the majestic and moving strains of the immortal “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, this giant of the musical stage remains timeless and starbright. The poignant story of the faithful Julie and her brutish husband Billy is one of the most powerful books of the musical theatre and perfectly matches its extraordinary score.

A Chili Climb Up Cotton January 19th

Saturday 9am-2:30am| Squam Lakes Association | 534 US Rte 3, Holderness

Cold weather climbers rejoice, for another guided hike from the Squam Lakes Association draws nigh! Come join Lakes Region Conservation Corps members Paul and Nikka as they take a treacherous trek up the steep slopes of Cotton Mountain, enjoy a warm chili lunch, and loop around along pleasant wooded trails, maybe even checking out an old graveyard along the way!

Be warned that the hike will be a bit difficult in the initial ascent, which is 0.7 miles up a steep trail, but we’ll be sure to work in plenty of breaks as needed. After reviving ourselves at the summit and taking in the views, we’ll continue on to the summit of Livermore for a lunch break, and then descend via the Prescott trail and take the gentle slopes of Old Highway back down to NH-113, where it is a quarter-mile road walk back to the parking area. In total, this loop is about 3.5 miles in distance. Timing is flexible and may take a little longer than planned (or be shorter) depending on weather conditions and pace of the group.

Registration is required. Space is limited to 10 people.
