ALBANY — Tin Mountain Conservation Center will be presenting the online program “State of N.H. Bear Population” on Thursday, April 15, at 7 p.m.

The state’s bear population may sleep half the year, but management for these mammals is a full-time, year-round job. That job belongs to Andrew Timmins (among many others). Andrew is a Wildlife Biologist and New Hampshire’s State Bear Biologist. Join us for this program as Andrew presents an overview of New Hampshire’s bear population, outlines the challenges it is facing and provides updates on current management techniques.

On Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m., Tin Mountain will be presenting the online program “Spring Birds and Water Fowl.”

There will be a discussion of birds that we can expect to see during our upcoming Ducks and Donuts field trip. Learn about common waterfowl species and their unique field identification markings, along with some facts about the ecology of these charismatic species. There will also be a talk about other early spring birds in the area.

Tin Mountain will present the field program “Ducks and Donuts” on Saturday, April 24, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The streams and ponds are opening up and ducks are returning. We’ll explore the old course of the Saco River and other open water in search of wood ducks, hooded mergansers, common golden eyes, and other early migrants. Bring binoculars and we’ll bring the doughnuts. The cost is $5 per person.

Space is limited. Reservations are required. Go to to register online or call (603) 447-6991.
