"Arctic Bird Migrations" with Peter McKinley May 23rd

Many people are aware of the ongoing conservation efforts to preserve and protect our Hampton Marshes. What is not so readily known is that the marshes are a crucial summer waypoint for many arctic birds that use these areas to rest and replenish their fat reserves. Conservation Biologist Peter McKinley will give an illustrated lecture on these birds and their migration habits at the Lane Memorial Library on Wednesday, May 23rd beginning at 6:00 pm. Suitable for adults and children, this multimedia presentation will introduce the public to yet another fascinating and important aspect of our marsh ecosystem. For more information, contact Darrell Eifert, Lane Memorial Library at 926-3368, or visit the New Hampshire Estuaries Project at
