Nighthawk Night Walk and Volunteer Training

Time: 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Place: Keene State College, Science Center, Room 101, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older

The dusk and dawn “peent” call of the Common Nighthawk (Chordeiles minor) was once a familiar sound in cities and towns throughout New Hampshire, where they nested on flat, peastone gravel roofs, and fed on insects attracted to city lights. In recent years nesting nighthawks have disappeared from many New Hampshire towns. In the few places where they remain (including Keene!), their numbers have dramatically declined. In partnership with New Hampshire Audubon, the Harris Center’s Citizen Science Program is once again coordinating volunteer nighthawk surveys on summer evenings in Keene. Come to the training to become a Project Nighthawk Volunteer, or simply to learn more about this charismatic endangered bird. We’ll begin indoors at the Keene State College Science Center (Room 101) at 7 p.m., then venture outside to look and listen for nighthawks in the twilight sky. Cosponsored with New Hampshire Audubon, and the Keene State College School of Sciences. Done about 8:30 p.m. 

Play: Invasive Species

Time: 7:00 pm-8:45 pm
Place: New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St., Brattleboro, VT (about 17 miles from Keene)
Price: Free, donations accepted

New species invade a pristine lake in rural New England and create havoc. But who are the real invaders? Blending humor and political satire,  this five-actor,  one-hour staged reading-in-costume by Berkshire County playwright and former daily newspaper editor David Scribner raises deep questions about climate change.   Staged as a benefit for the New England Youth Theater,  Invasive Species is a work-in-process.
Meet the playwright after the late show. Late details at:
