Branch Hill Farm Extends “Seasons of Change” Walk

Moose Mountains Regional Greenways invites the public to continue exploring the Branch Hill Farm property in Milton Mills through the seasons! The ‘Seasons of Change’ walk is newly updated for the winter months and will be open most days from sunrise to sunset.  This event continues to offer families a safe, informative, and fun place to walk with their kids during this time of home isolation.  The walk also features a ‘story walk’ based on the Berenstain Bears series and sponsored by the Milton Free Public Library and a new assortment of birdhouses built by the Carroll County Conservation District. We ask that the public please adhere to social distancing guidelines on this self-guided walk. Thank you to our Seasons of Change sponsor D.F. Richard for making this continuing opportunity possible!                    

“Exploring Forest Habitats” Educational Walk 10/31/2020

Join MMRG and Branch Hill Farm for a Forest Habitat Walk on October 31st, 10:00am-1:00pm, with Charlie Moreno (NH Licensed Professional Forester) and Mariko Yamasaki (Research Wildlife Biologist, USDA Forest Service). We’ll walk through Branch Hill Farm in Milton, NH, and visit two very different forest habitats — a mature forest with century-old hemlock and pine, and a six-years-young forest patch of new growth.
Participants will learn about the essential value that these habitats offer to the invertebrates, birds, and mammals inhabiting them. We’ll also discuss habitat ecology, maintaining optimal ecological areas, and long-term management strategies. This will be a wonderful opportunity for landowners and the general public to learn more about the importance of forests to wildlife! More info here: https://mmrg.info/explore-forest-habitats/
This workshop is rain or shine and we will be requiring masks and practicing social distancing to keep the event safe and fun for all.
