Nature’s Summer Sampler Stroll

Summer Celebration Stroll June 2023.jpg

By the end of June, our natural world is brimming with enchanting noises and entertaining movement as many mammals and birds are active with the warmer days and ample food availability. Lush fields and meadows are a riot of color, welcoming a host of pollinators and other insects.

Join Kelly Dwyer on June 22 at 9 am or 10:15 am as we stroll through the Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth. Along the forested route, adjacent to a beautiful tidal saltmarsh on Sagamore Creek, we will explore the following:

  • Deciduous and conifer forests which provide ideal habitat for nesting songbirds and busy mammals.
  • Wildflower fields, home to a variety of pollinators, and several native plant species.
  • Tidal marsh habitat where we may see raptors such as osprey and bald eagles.
