Cog Railway and Appalachian Mountain Club Offer a Natural History Train Tour of Mt. Washington

11:45 AM - Bretton Woods

Join Appalachian Mountain Club Senior Interpretive Naturalist, Nancy Ritger, on the Cog Railway, for a tour of Mount Washington's amazing natural environment on Monday, August 31. Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, is home to some of the rarest alpine plant-life in the world, existing only in the Presidential Range. This naturalist tour consists of a round trip ride on the Cog Railway and a three-hour guided tour of the summit. Nancy will lead the group in exploring the tundra environment at the top of the mountain, taking the opportunity to walk down the Crawford Path and observing the adaptations of the plants and animals to live in such a harsh environment. Tour participants will get the chance to observe a variety of alpine species that can be found around the summit cone, from the low-growing krumholtz to the tightly bound cushion plant. Participants should plan to arrive at the railway base station 45 minutes prior to the 12:30 pm departure time for an introductory session. The round trip tour is approximately 5 hours, returning around 5:30. The cost is $109 per person, ages 12 and over. Participants should be comfortable traversing rocky terrain and dress for mountain-top weather (temperatures at the summit can be 30 degrees colder than at the base), including boots or sturdy shoes, layers, windbreaker, rain gear, gloves, hat, water and snacks.

Ron Goodgame & Donna Canney 2015 Educational Programming

7:00 PM - Wolfeboro

"The Changing Fortunes of War . . . " – Lecture on FDR by Jeff Urbin On December 9, 1941, President Roosevelt used one of his famous Fireside Chats to announce to a stunned nation that America was at war. Although in hindsight Allied victory may seem to have been assured, the ultimate outcome of the Second World War was far from certain. In his talk, Jeff Urban will highlight the roles played by President and Mrs. Roosevelt in leading the nation to victory through the uncertain course of the war in Europe, the Pacific, and here at home. Jeffrey Urbin is the Education Specialist at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York, and is responsible for all the Library's education offerings from the second grade to elder hostel programs. He is also head of the Pare Lorentz Film Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library. Urban holds degrees in Public Administration and Political Science, and taught history and government for public and private colleges before joining the National Archives and Records Administration at the Roosevelt Presidential Library. Doors open at 6:00 program begins at 7:00. Call 569-1212 to reserve your seats.

The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol

7:00 PM - Freedom

The story of the Old Man of the Mountain in Franconia Notch is a story of New Hampshire itself, reflecting history, the arts, literature, geography, philosophy and public policy. Maggie Stier's illustrated talk reveals the ways that this iconic place has sparked observers' imaginations, attracted intense personal commitment, and symbolized changing public sentiment. Stier details the threats to the Old Man and Franconia Notch that led to protection as a State Park and, later, to the construction of the Franconia Notch Parkway. She concludes with an analysis of what caused the fall of the Old Man in 2003, a summary of private efforts to create a memorial, and a discussion of how this unique natural phenomenon may be remembered by future generations. The audience is invited to bring souvenirs, memorabilia or other artifacts of the Old Man of the Mountain for a shared display before and after the program, and to share their own experiences and memories on this topic. This event is free and open to the public through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
