Event Details

July 11 – Rick Libby – The Wildlife of New Hampshire

Rick has been photographing wildlife for over 40 years.  Forsaking a tripod, most of his work is done
from a kayak or using a monopod.  Rick
works to photograph wildlife, whether they be on land, water, or in the air,
living their lives with as little disruption as possible.

July 18 – Ben Kilham – The Social Black Bear

Black bears, thought to be solitary, have a different type
of social behavior that possibly parallels early human behavior. They show
evidence of reciprocal altruism, matri-linear hierarchy, and a mix of
intentional and emotional communication.

July 25 – Squam Lake Natural Science Center – Creatures
of the Night

How do wild animals find food in the dark or escape
predators? You don't have to stay up late to get a close look at elusive
nocturnal creatures. Meet three live creatures of the night with a Squam Lake
Natural Science Center naturalist to learn surprising details of their
adaptations, which make them well-suited for night life.
