The 2019 Conference banner photo was taken by Emily Lord, Society for the Protection of NH Forests. Emily also served on the board of Moose Mountains Regional Greenways from 2016 to 2019. Here is the story behind the photo:
On a warm May afternoon at the 117-acre WidowMaker Farm in New Durham, Moose Mountains Regional Greenways offered ‘Ponding for Pollywogs’ with naturalist Sally Cornwell. The event was the third kids’ outdoor discovery activity in a new nature-oriented program for families called ‘MOOSE-ies for Families’. “We saw so many different critters!” exclaimed Stephanie Richard later that day, a mom who had brought her two-and-a-half-year-old to join the outing along with her new infant in a backpack. She went on, “I love any event that gets my kids interacting with other kids while spending time outdoors.” WidowMaker Farm was conserved in 2018 with support from LCHIP and many private contributions.
